        <b>DutchPIPE is software that enables <nobr>multi user,</nobr>
        <nobr>object oriented,</nobr> <nobr>persistent state</nobr>
        <nobr>web sites</nobr></b>, and is a whole new perspective of looking at
        sites and pages. The site becomes an abstracted world or universe
        populated with objects, which can be moved into or out of eachother and
        perform certain actions. There's only one world with one set of objects
        - if you drop something on a page, someone else can visit that page, see
        the object, and carry it away elsewhere.

    On the client side, DutchPIPE uses the DOM, XHTML and Javascript. On the
    server side, PHP is run from the command line and from the web server. It
    should run on any operating system/web server that supports PHP version 5.
    MySQL is used as the database to store users and such, but this can be any
    database. Client and server communicate by means of AJAX.</p>
