This is a really helpful tiny FAQ - I wish I had known about it earlier. 
Thanks Michel.

Shouldn't this FAQ be advertised on the seaside web page (along with 
instructions on how to view it)? It clears out many of the problems 
beginners run into when starting Seaside and try to follow the tutorials 
found online. Nearly all the tutorials use the old WAHtmlRenderer which 
is not used by default in a new Seaside installation - this FAQ explains 
the difference and reasons behind the switch.

Regarding the files, I am looking for a way to serve binary data from 
directly within the image itself, not using files on the external 
filesystem. I'm planning on using Magma as the persistent repository for 
everything and don't want to rely on stuff out on the filesystem, hence 
I need a way to load and serve my images completely from within squeak.
