OK no need to reply I get it now :D

inetd is the daemon responsible for handing network interfaces and starting network services (don't kown why I didn't guess that from the name :D ) and since Swat is a network service on port 901 it is inetd that gets to run it when something tries to connect to port 901.

I've read the page life cycle thing in msdn, still, i'm getting a bit confused of thinking how all the things are going under the hood... I know that when page loading, that the controls' properties is populated and when page unloading, the resources are cleared. What I want to know is what's happening behind it, that is, from the perspective of the asp.net implementor.....I'm not sure whether i've stated clearly, hope you get it.

I'm a CSS newbie, but I was browsing through the css files in the YUI library, and I noticed the following line: body {font:13px/1.231 arial,helvetica,clean,sans-serif;*font- size:small;*font:x-small;} I understand everything but the "/1.231". Is that something like a multiplier on the EM size? I can't find an example of that in the CSS spec.
