When you plan for the Web, you have to think about navigation. Users don't have a workspace to select the database they want. You must provide site-wide navigation that is consistent. Don't use outlines in one database and links in another. Some of the navigation techniques used in Notes can be used on the Web. For an application that resides in one database, you can use the outline but then changes must be done by a developer, which may be OK. The Web offers additional navigation possibilities such as horizontal and vertical menus that can have submenus. There are menus already designed and available for free and purchase on the Internet.
In this section, we explore different ways to layout the site and pages, from a view-based menu to frameless pages and ways to use embedded views.
