Thanks, Janko, for answering my questions.

It's remarkable that you are so dedicated to helping out newcomers like
this.  Thanks for explaining about columnFilters in WebGrid, and about how
table formatting works.

Hi TreyC, welcome to the list!

Can I ask a bit more about this? Suppose I would like to create another
AIDASite to run WebDemo, say on 


Following the instructions on
http://www.aidaweb.si/administrators-guide.html (section 3.1), I tried to
run the following code in a workspace:

   AIDASite newNamed: 'testdemo'.
   (AIDASite named: 'testdemo') host: 'www.mysite.com' ip: ''
   (AIDASite named: 'testdemo') start

but I got an error message stating:  Site with such host:ip:port combination
not allowed!

Since I can't get a new instance of WebDemo running on my local machine, I
can't get to the next step of assigning it the URL. 


How do I go about running WebDemo on this URL?

I tried to download the SqueakSite package at http://mc.bisokop.fr to study
it, but the URL does not resolve.  Is the URL correct?
