I understand what the web-inf directory is for. But why did they call it that? What does "inf" stand for?

Just wundrin.

Rick,
I'm not positive, but I think it's "web information". It has the same meaning as the META-INF in a jar file - a directory that contains information about the rest of the archive.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
