Could someone explain the difference between Instant Web Publishing and Web Companion?

I'm trying to design a database that users can log in to from the web, see only those records that meet the calculation for their account and then be able to modify those records.

I have enabled Instant Web Publishing, which seems to work, but don't see the Web Companion anywhere in the program.

Thanks.

FileMaker Version: 7

Platform: Windows XP

Web Companion is the software (middle-ware) that acts as the interface between the web browser and the database.

Instant Web Publishing is a feature of Web Companion whereby layouts in the database are converted to html for display on the web. Due to the limitations of HTML and the web interface, there are FMP layout and interface features that cannot be translated into the web interface, so the layouts used for IWP should be designed carefully with these limitations in mind.

Web Companion is used in FMP 6 and earlier. FMP 7 uses a different method of generating the web interface.
