Regardless of the final web-page application, these four basic components and their associated steps can be viewed discretely (and at least for the purposes of building a first generation web-site, should be). That is to say that although there is some requirement that these activities be carried out in the order listed, there exists good opportunity for parallel efforts. The basic rationale for the web-site should be documented (if only to act as a reference point or focus criteria for inclusion of content) but once this is done it can act as a gauge for the appropriateness of content and the real work can begin: Content Assembly.
