Thanks for posting Giovanni's reply, David!

And just as a side note - I have used CGIDEV2 in every place I've ever worked.  I use it extensively for creating XML documents, even if they don't get sent via web browser.  CGIDEV2 is fantastic for creating a template and filling it in with repetitive (or not so repetitive) enterprise data.

Yes, there are other tools, but the simplicity of an RPG program and a text editor is hard to beat.

Thanks to everyone providing answers to David Lerman question while I was away.

I think that the whole trouble arises from Paul Tuohy calling “directives” (NOT HTTTP CONFIGURATION DIRECTIVES!!!) what are simply “CGIDEV2 HTML internal html notations”.

CGIDEV2 features a full tutorial starting at page http://cgidev2.easy400.net/cgidev2o/tutorial.htm#4 .

The answer to David’s question is at page http://cgidev2.easy400.net/cgidev2o/exhibit3.htm and is related to naming conventions of HTML output sections issued to the WEB browser from CGIDEV2-based programs.

CGIDEV2 also features a number of small demo programs (see page http://cgidev2.easy400.net/cgidev2o/demos.htm ). One may easily display the sources of these programs and understand how a CGI program creates the HTML output sent to the WEB browser.
