As mentioned earlier, one of the most powerful and fundamental aspects of Content Management Server is its built-in recognition of the different skill sets that contribute to the process of creating and updating a Web site. Web sites are a result of ongoing collaboration between people in different roles, including site administrators, site developers (who are responsible for template design in Content Management Server), content authors, and editors. There is an entire section dedicated to these different roles, and how rights can be granted within roles, later in this chapter.
Even the users who are the intended audience of the Web site are assigned to a role. Such users are said to be "subscribers," and subscriber access to the Web site can be controlled just like access for other roles, by using rights groups.
