The template connects stylesheet information to the documents to be displayed. See the example.


The combination of mediator and template presents a flexible way to connect the display information to different documents. By including two mediators into the project document, one could provide the manager site of the Bellshape system with a different layout from the user site, e.g. for practical reasons (more work space on the screen).

One can also connect a template to a certain document, e.g. a questionnaire. This way it is possible to give a certain instrument its own layout.
