Componets are the basic building blocks for GNUstepWeb.
Every componet is a directory. A component can represent a whole web page or just a part of it. It is easy to re-use pieces needed multiple times. A component contains three files they contain the HTML, the connections or bindings of your objects and additional information like the used encoding. Those files are suffixed .html, .wod and .woo.
If we use the WO Name syntax (Tags Named WEBOBJECT) we have the advantage of Web Objects Builder compatibility.
