While debate swirls in high circles of TWiki development as to whether a topic should simply be called a page, there is a good case for the distinction:

  • a WikiTopic has a distinct WikiWord title that defines it; a Web page doesn't
  • a topic's content is self-contained, doesn't spill over onto other topics; a Web page can continue a subject, book-like, across many pages
