Web Helpers is a library of helper functions intended to make writing
-templates in web applications easier.
+templates in web applications easier. It's the standard function library for
+Pylons and TurboGears 2. It also contains a large number of functions not
+specific to the web, including text processing, number formatting, date
+calculations, container objects, etc.
-One of the sub-sections of Web Helpers contains a full port of the
-template helpers that are provided by Ruby on Rails with slight
-adaptations on occasion to accomodate for Python.
+The current documentation is in the module docstrings. New web documentation is
+being prepared as part of the Pylons 0.9.7 project. Questions or feedback about
+WebHelpers can be submitted to the `pylons-discuss
+<http://groups.google.com/group/pylons-discuss>`_ mailing list.
