         well, at this point i can suppose that we have understand. If we don't see a "Change" button, may be we have
         to look at a strange-called "Save Changes" button. Don't seem to be so hard..!!

         I think Zope is a very good development environment

         Would you please stop berating people who point out small mistakes in the documentation? For a novice user
         who isn't 100% au fait with the web it can be utterly bewildering if they're told to look for Button X and
         Button X just doesn't exist. They may assume that they've done something wrong, they're on the wrong screen,
         etc etc etc. Novice users will also quickly lose faith in documentation if the detail is actually wrong.

         Wider and Narrower aren't working on my Netscape 6.2 (on Linux)
         Probably some browser specific code?

         I agree with the "please stop berating people" person. If nothing else, this book should contain ACCURATE
         how-to steps in using Zope. Changing the button names etc. to reflect the current software should be a high
         priority for the maintainers of this book.
         Many times there are similarly-named functions presented to the user, and without an exact description, the
         user may need to guess between them. This is only bad for the adoption and evaluation of any software.
