Creating a web site with Zope

We created the electronic posters for RSNA 1999, 2000 and 2001 with Dreamweaver.  We created With Zope the electronic posters for RSNA 2002.  This was a fully new way of doing things for us.  Not only was the interface new but the way of doing it.  With conventional HTML editors, as illustrated in the drawings below, pages are composed on a local workstation by one author, images, text or comments can eventually be provided by mail or FTP.  With the Zope server pages are composed fully and only on line through a simple web navigator.  All co-authors work remotely connected to a single server through the internet.  Many co-authors can edit the same or different pages at the same time.  All posters are only stored on the Zope server.  Our Zope server is running on a single PC connected to the Internet.  The server’s operating system is SUSE Linux.  Zope server version 2.5.1 (Python2.1.3 based) is used accelerated by an apache HTTP proxy and web server.  All these tools are Open source software.  The authors used MS windows PC or Macintosh with MS Internet Explorer to access the server through the internet.  All co-authors have high-speed (Cable or DSL) internet connection at work and at home.
