Binary Digit (aka 'bit') is a number that can have to values (0 or 1)
An Octet is 8 bits
1ko (kilo-octet) is 1024 bits (not 1000 because computer work with bit and
then work with powre of 2, not power of 10)
1mo (mega-octet) is 1024 ko

if your .java file is encoded in ascii, 1 octet = 1 char (space en
cariage-return count as 1 char :) )

So you can gues that finding a bug hidden in 20ko of code is 100 times
shorted than finding it in 2mo of code.

>All articles on cocooncenter are written in xdoc (with some additions to
fit the needs of my pages). So, if you wrote your tutorial in xdoc, it would
be easy to publish.

Since now, all my docs have been written in .doc (ms word), but i'll try to
read the docs about how to write xdocs :)
