Computing Dictionary

Multiple files output from some operation.

The term has been heard in use at microsoft to describe the set of files output when microsoft word does "Save As a web Page" or "Save as html". The process can result in a main xml or html file, a graphic file for each image in the original, a css file, etc.

This can be an issue as xml can be used as the default format in office 2000, and document management systems can't yet cope with the relationship between the files in a thicket when checking in and out.
