    3232        Your journey into the land of easy web application 
    33         creation has started. You can use TurboGears to create 
    34         all kind of web content, especially  
    35         <abbr title="Asynchronous JavaScript and XML">AJAX</abbr> 
    36         powered applications, providing real-time interactive content

    48               Start developing immediately with the pre-configured SQLite 
    49               database, if you have SQLite installed, or edit  
    50               <span class="code">dev.cfg</span> to use 
    51               a different database.<br /> 
    53               Note that TurboGears support several 
    54               different database backends, including mySQL, PostgreSQL 
    55               and SQLite, but you need to have the backend installed. 
     43               Develop your model in the <span class="code">model.py</span> file. 
     44               If SQLite is installed, your database is already set up but you can edit  
     45              <span class="code">dev.cfg</span> to use a different backend.
