Yes, this list is for technical discussion of HTML and XHTML, and is 
not a help line.

Depending on context, it means a Web site operating on more than one 
server, or a Web hosting service sometimes called a "server farm" 
with multiple servers hosting many sites. See [1].

Two very different examples of the latter off the top of my head are 
pair Networks [2] and Exodus Communications [3].

Try searching at Google [4] or your favorite search engine.

Good luck.
