Understanding HTTP PUT

http://www.w3.org

"I was in the process of writing an article to explain on how to make possible to edit your Web pages with HTTP PUT and Amaya (W3C technologies testbed authoring tool). The information is scarce on how to configure your server. This is my attempt at explaining HTTP PUT. Your comments are welcome.
