a file, but are generated from database data.

Each page consists of zero or more 'articles'. These articles can be placed at the banner, top, bottom, left, center, and right content areas.
Floating Articles
Floating articles may be named or unnamed.

The William Herschel Telescope. La Palma, Canary Islands.
floating articles simply float into the top of the succeeding article.

Named floating articles don't automatically float into the next article. The float macro must be used to insert named floating articles into any article any number of times. Set the article's page to 'all' to make it available on any page.

To produce the best 'pleasing to the eye' format, you can adjust the font face, font size, line spacing, padding, macro position, float alignment, float width and image sizes.
There can be any number of pages and any number of articles on a page. Articles can be assigned to all pages or to a specific page.

Pages and articles have selectable viewing privileges. A member or guest can view pages or articles that have the viewing privileges set to include their member level. Articles may be assigned a start-up time and an ending time.

There are numerous macros that output table of contents, pagelinks, gallerys, gallery links, gallery picklist, rss feeds, summary of calendar events, categorized links, encrypted email links, mail page such as newsletter, members contact, play media file, login, site registration, datetime and more.
