        The anonymous user has security controls like any other, it
        has the role *Anonymous*. By default the *Anonymous* role can
        only access public resources, and can't change any Zope
        objects. You can tailor this policy, but most of the time
        you'll find the default anonymous security settings adequate.

           _*Anonymous*_ may only access objects with a 'View' permission, right?
           So far only users were discussed.
           Maybe there should be a section on possible perms before or at least 1 sentence here about a later section.

           I think what's really missing here is a clear explanation of the default security policy in Zope. "Acquire"
           for security settings isn't very helpful when we don't know what we're acquiring!
