  +References usage notes for release 1.4b5
  +==============================================
  +
  +PSML Reference is a method of nesting psml resource within another psml resource. This
is roughly comparable to 
  +object linking and embedding concept (for those familiar with M$ Windows). The customizer
allows to select
  +a reference to another psml resource and it shows it just like another portlet. When portal
page containing
  +references is rendered, the references are rendered as well. The most important feature
of a reference is that
  +when the psml being referred to (source of the reference) is changed, all psml referring
to it can see the change.
  +You may utilize references to create some interesting "newspaper layout" like effects.
Here are known issues and 
  +limitations:
  +
  +	1. The reference browser displays all available psml resources (including admin's) and
therefore access to
  +	the "Add Reference" button is available to admin role only by default.
  +
  +	2. A reference may only be included if it has a defined security ref. You may still select
the reference
  +	for inclusion in your profile but the request will be ignored if the selected psml contains
no top level
  +	security ref (a warning will be logged in jetspeed.log).
  +
  +	3. A reference is read-only which means that you cannot customize the psml included as
a reference.
  +
  +	4. Because of the way references are being stored in memory, when source psml is changed,
the psml referring to
  +	it will not see the change until it is refreshed (i.e. upon psml cache expiration).
  +
  +Some or all of the above shortcomings will be addressed in the future releases of Jetspeed.
