Thanks. I think it is really important to show people how to use Zope in
a step by step fashion.

Thanks, this is probably the result of a incomplete packaging of the
help system for the tutorial release on my part.

Right. Javascript is only used to take you to the appropriate management
screen for each lesson. There should be some way to notify folks without
JS that they'll have to turn the pages manually.

I think that the tutorial product could hold many lessons. Maybe it
could have multiple different tutorials, but in general I am thinking in
terms of one tutorial, many lessons.

Sorry. Again, this is due to an incomplete packaging job on my part.
Though I'm not sure what this has to do with the tutorial exactly...

Thanks for your feedback!
