> Improved documentation for Nested Conversations

> Nested conversations have been discussed at length on several occasions on the forum.  The documentation states:
> "A conversation may be thought of as a continuable state. Nested conversations allow the application to capture a consistent continuable state at various points in a user interaction, thus insuring truly correct behavior in the face of backbuttoning and workspace management."
> This gives the impression of use of nested conversations to achieve a continuation server approach.  This approach is possible and is described at the forum reference, but it seems that most developers use nested conversations for sub-flows ending the conversation at the end of the sub-flow.  This does not allow back-buttoning to the sub-flow (which seems to be in conflict with the documentation above).
> (I will add a link to an article describing the continuation approach in a few weeks, perhaps it could serve as a patch)
