"There was a time, back in the stone age of 1994, when building a decent Web site was a relatively simple thing to do. Back then, you fired up your copy of Emacs, wrote a couple of lines of HTML, pulled together a couple of .GIF files, and presto; you had a presence on the Web. ...today's Web sites are much more than just a set of HTML pages; they are full-fledged applications with user interfaces that just happen to be displayed in your browser."

"The good news is that there are plenty of tools available to help you cut through all the complexity and create truly powerful Web sites. We decided that it was time to dive into the mix and take a close look at some of the products and technologies that are available today for the serious Linux Web site developer."

"The systems we looked at included both open source projects (such as PHP and Zope), as well as commercial products (such as Chili!Soft ASP and IBM's WebSphere). They allow Web developers to add dynamic content, document management, and interactivity to their Web sites."
