Direct editing of documents

Editing of documents stored in BSCW is usually done by downloading the document, editing the document on your local computer and uploading it afterwards. Under certain circum­stan­ces, however, docu­ments may be edited from the web-based user interface directly on your BSCW server:

text and HTML documents, using editors which are integrated into the Web browser;

MS Office files, using WebDAV (only possible when you are using Internet Explorer under Windows);

arbitrary documents using a local helper application that supports direct editing with external editors.

In addition, text and HTML documents may be directly created on the BSCW server.
