Dynamic Browser-Based Authoring

The CommonSpot content authoring model uniquely enables content providers and approvers to work directly within the context of the page.  Instead of authoring content as static HTML pages, reviewing offline, then uploading, revising, and re-uploading pages, CommonSpot contributors and approvers interact directly with the page, creating a dynamic content generation environment in which authors, editors, designers, and approvers simply navigate to the desired page to make appropriate changes or approvals directly.

How does this work?  In response to an HTTP request from the Web Server, CommonSpot dynamically constructs the resulting page based on:

CommonSpot Elements help guide users through authoring and publishing tasks.  Throughout the publishing process, CommonSpot indicators display role and status information as content moves through creation, review, approval, and final publication.
