    In a non-object-oriented application, your data is separate from
    your code.  But in an object oriented application, both your data
    and your code is stored in one or more objects, each of which
    represents a particular "thing".  Objects can represent just about
    anything.  In Zope, the *Control_Panel* is an object, Folders
    which you create are objects, even the Zope "root folder" is an
    object.  When you use the Zope "add list" to create a new item in
    the Zope Management Interface, you are creating an object.  People
    who extend Zope by creating *Products* define their own types of
    objects which are then entered in to the Zope "add list", allowing
    you to create objects from them.  A product author might define a
    "Form" object or a "Weblog" object.  Basically, anything which can
    be described using a noun can be modelled as an object.

       "types of objects" = "classes" ???

       Zope Objects is type defenitions (like C++ classes) or real object instances?
