Thanks guys for clearing up my 'terminology paranoia'.

In this new platform independent world, I guess there are still a few
platform dependent terminology issues yet to be resolved (or at least
documented). (:

Anselm, you have done a great job on the Jigsaw documentation! It is very
clear well laid out, and most of all, includes examples for extending the
server by writing new filters and resources, (and the examples actually
work!). Being a Java newbie, these examples have provided great insight.
Thank you! -jeff
