Abstract: In this paper we present a model of versioned web sites which is aimed at building a web site configuration. The web site configuration is a consistent version of the web site and serves for navigation purposes. We exploit the fact that the versioning of web sites is in many aspects similar to versioning of software systems (and their components). On the other hand, specific characteristics related to the web environment and web sites in particular are considered. The web site is modelled by an AND/OR type graph. The model serves as a useful abstraction simplifying the process of configuration building. Being essentially a graph search, it is inevitable to have a method for selecting a proper version. Presented approach is best suited for web sites where several variants of web pages exist. It is advantageous for example for presentation of multilingual web sites. We briefly discuss developed software tool for versioning and navigation on the multilingual web site which is based on proposed model of versioned web site.
