Hi Lars,

> What exactly is the "New Composite Page" in DOCS? 

It lets you create a .page resource.
(.page is like a .sequence in that it ties a bunch of resources
together, but with the difference that it shows them all at once
rahter than one at a time.)

You can either
- create a .html file on your computer and then upload it
- create a .html file in CSTR, publish it and then include it

> Why is the "Simple page" format so restricted? 

It is an attempt to make it so be can create pages of information
without having to type any html.
