Now that the syntax of the lgs language has been presented, it should be clear that lgs does not really have a syntax. Rather, the user of lgs defines the syntax to be used and then uses that syntax in the body of the lgs source.

Likewise, as described in the section on loading, lgs does not really have a semantics. Rather, the user of lgs defines the semantics to be used and then uses that semantics.

A published Logiweb page is no more than a dense, binary representation of the parse tree of the body with a bibliography and a dictionary in front. That representation is called the 'vector' of a page and is the output lgc(1) generates after parsing a page.

Logiweb defines the syntax and semantics of Logiweb vectors and defines the protocol used between Logiweb servers. The lgs language lives outside of Logiweb and just constitutes one possible format for expressing Logiweb vectors.
