Subject newbie question -- book.xml versus site.xml
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2003 22:56:23 GMT

  assuming that this is the appropriate place for newbie questions,
i'm developing my first web site with forrest and i'll probably have
the occasional question as i figure this out.

  first question -- as i read it, if there is a site.xml file, it
will be used.  if there is no such file, book.xml is used instead.

  while i prefer the more obvious layout of book.xml, i like the
"site:" feature that's available with a site.xml file.  i'd like
to create a hierarchical structure of .xml files, and have some of
them refer back to the top-level, so the "site:" qualifier would
be handy.

  if i choose book.xml, is there an analogous way to do this?
or should i just explicitly use "../" parent references?

  and which is the preferred file that most people are using?
