What are the differences between Domino R4 and R6?

What are the differences between Domino R4 and R6?
To answer this completely would take a multi-volume book, but I can make a few general characterizations about the differences. R4 had minimal Web support, and the Designer was not distinguished from the Client. This was appropriate for the time in which it was developed. In 4.6, the Domino Web server had many enhancements that allowed users to deploy reasonable Web applications from their Notes applications. This trend continued in R5, where the Designer also acquired more of a distinct identity, and enabled users to build applications for the Notes client and/or the Web client. Notes Domino 6 continued this trend, providing support for standard Web elements such as style sheets (also in the Notes client) and JavaScript libraries.

If you install Domino 6, the Help has a nice feature ("What's New in 6?") that will explain the differences between R5 and 6.
