Consilient, you must understand Sitelets -- self-contained, portable XML
documents containing the components of a business process (visual interface,
business logic, and data). Think of a Sitelet as a mini-application server
that can be delivered via any Web-enabled application or device such as
e-mail, a URL, or a PDA."
