Large Web Site Build

Foglight eDocs Documentation Web Site Award-winning web site that provides a large quantity of product documentation to customers. See Information Architecture Project for the design and project management part of the effort. Foglight eDocs was built with standard, freely available web technologies and does not require a database or content management system. Navigation pages group the content by product and release.
