Fortunately, a number of software companies are beginning to catch on that this is a good idea. Page installation is a waste of time for a systems administrator, particularly for a large ISP, and is much more satisfactorily handled by providing good tools for users to install their own pages. For some users it is even crucial that they can immediately install updates of their content. Hyperwave has long made this possible. In Australia HarvestRoad has produced WebNOW! Web Site Publishing and Management System to address this need. I would still like to see this facility recommended as a standard feature of Web software.
