Traditional web content management solutions aim to make it easy for non-technical usersto create content with simple-to-use, fill-in-the-blanks forms and WYSIWYG (What YouSee Is What You Get) editors. The concept is to separate content development from layoutand let the web professionals manage how web content is targeted, published, andpresented to customers.
But this approach has proven to be lengthy and expensive, requiring significant ITinvolvement and creating a web development bottleneck for new business initiatives. Inaddition, it has provided business users with little direct control over the layout, function-ality, and management of their intranets, extranets, and public sites. These professionalsare looking for greater control in order to ensure that this critical communications vehicleis meeting their business objectives.

EMC Documentum Web Publishing Architecture
How it worksUsing Page Builder, knowledge workers can navigate through existing websites andselect the page or individual component to edit. Or they can build a web page fromscratch simply by adding rows and columns and defining the sections: header, footer,navigation, content area, and others. During the creation process, users have the abilityto lock and unlock every component, as well as select the preview function to see whatthe page looks like in context of the entire site.
When creating a web page, Page Builder supports the editing and deployment of multiplecontent types, such as rich text, plain text, images, hyperlinks, navigation, movies(Flash, Windows Media Player), layouts, and external components.
With the help of simple, context-sensitive menus, users can create practically an unlimitednumber of arbitrary page layouts. The content is stored in the repository as an XML fileand rendered using XSLT. Each page template is stored on the server as an XML documentand the structure is driven by the XML Schema. Among other things, Schema defineswhich elements are allowed and where they are allowed. It also defines the details ofeach content element, for example, its attributes and default values.
Unlike other editors, Page Builder supports web content transformations out of theboxweb developers do not need to design a new XSL Content validation and updatesare performed on the server-side using XSL. In certain cases this is done asynchro-nously, while browser-side updates (non-persistent) are performed to improve userinterface responsiveness.

and edits the content. The user has selected the rich text component and is able to make edits "in-line"
