Thanks. I think I got a little bit taken away with the whole "it's got 
nothing to do with urls/http/html" speech ;-) Since I don't know the 
whole of W3Cs specs at heart it wouldn't have surprised me to find out 
that there is some magic hidden inside seaside that makes it happen.

BTW (and this is not a criticism of Seaside but rather the docs) there 
is quite a bit of confusion for me about what exactly a component is 
expected to do and what not. Like: the component shouldn't worry about 
pages but it needs to worry about forums. Having the responsibilities 
stated somewhere would help me getting a better feel for understanding 
how to structure seaside apps. There are various other areas (the use of 
styles and css, or meta tags for example) that I'm not at all sure where 
the responsibility lies.

Any good places to read up on? (where is the Seaside book when you need 
it ;-)
