SOW is an experimental project, which means that it is not suitable for use in commercial products or products that depend upon reliability. It is likely to change often and is entirely driven on it's community of users and developers.

Creating simple HTML based web pages has become a fairly easy task. It is not uncommon for the hobbyist of any age to create a web site comprised entirely of HTML based web pages. However, creating dynamic web pages introduces certain complexities-it requires knowledge of a language capable of running under the Common Gateway Interface (CGI).

The purpose of SOW is to separate embedded HTML code within the scripting language. It accomplishes this by using the concepts of mail-merge programs. To be certain, SOW is not a language and it is not an XML replacement. There are other viable and efficient ways to produce dynamic HTML code.
