Today while answering this email and reading that TR doc,
i had the idea to review the name of each Step to make
it very clear.

I could not decide on a name for Step 4. The closest
choice was "Windower" ... creating a window on the
whole thing* through which gain the view. The "view"
is bigger than the window.

* The "thing" is the XML stream, model, structure, whatever
we call it.

I would like to edit this TR doc, but i am not sure about
the file naming or the format.
Going to copy that to TR/2005/WD-forrest10.html
and continue with the raw HTML format with embedded style.
Should i delete the 2004 or leave it?
