Objectives and Goals
The main technical goals of this e-commerce plataform are:
The layout and other visual aspects of the site must be driven by Cascading Style Sheets, compatible with latest browsers: Internet Explorer 6.x and Mozilla 1.4.
As far as possible, the platform must not imply any constraints or make any assumptions regarding hosting requirements. The only requirements are to have PHP enabled for server-side scripting and a running MySQL database engine for the backend.
Last but not least, it must allow more modules to be added or plugged in to the plataform without disruption of live site. These add-ons are included by left or right columns code, or as modules, and can be enabled or disabled with much ease.
