Summary


No web page is an island. In web development, each document that you work on exists as part of a collective. In that collective might be linked pages, images, multimedia files, and other resource files. All of these parts must be tracked, uploaded, and maintained as a unit. Managing all of those files can be a daunting task. Exactly which files need to be part of the website? How should they be organized into directories and sub-directories? What colors are to be used site-wide? What about external style sheets or script documents? What if you decide halfway through building the site that you really should have been more consistent in naming your pages, or that you want your images in their own folder? You can’t even think of uploading your site to a web server and sharing it with the world until you have these management concerns taken care of.
