SharePoint Customization: (almost) Everything you should know about Ghosting and Unghosting

It seems there are unlimited questions surrounding ghosted -vrs- unghosted pages in SharePoint.

Just to name a few …

What is it exactly?
What causes it?
What doesn’t cuase it?
Does a site or page get unghosted?
Can you reghost a page once it’s unghosted?

Luckily for us there are lots of great answers out there. I figured with so many discussions on this topic lately I’d try to bring a bunch of them together for my own use as well as anyone that ever searches this site for ghosting issues.
