This document provides an overview of non-administration aspects of the WASD package. Intended more for the end-user authoring documents or wishing to use some particular behaviour, most of the aspects descibed here can be used without recourse to the site administrator. Originally intended for an audience inside the organisation where WASD originated, at a time when the Web and web technologies were in their infancy (i.e. last century :-) the document is focused on WASD specifics and admittedly is a little dated in the some of the aspects covered but not in the detail. The descriptions in this document are kept current.
The document assumes a basic understanding of web technologies and uses some terms without explaining them (e.g. HTTP, HTML, URL, CGI, etc.) It is not a tutorial on writing HTML or any other documents.
