if you’re about to delete a document workspace because the document is finished, make sure
you copy the final version of the document to the parent site first.
The Delete This
This section provides administrative links to change site behavior and appearance beyond the
general look and feel. Most site administration settings are applied or configured right after site
creation and then left alone.

The Regional Settings page deals with location-specific settings, such as Time Zone, Date,
Calendar, and so on. By default, a new site is given the same settings as its parent site. So, it’s a
good idea to examine these settings (shown in Figure 9.24), especially settings such as Define
Your Work Week, which can really impact the way the calendar works for all site participants
unless they explicitly override it with their own regional settings. Letting the site know your
organization’s daily start and end times will assist in tracking appointments (or overtime) and
ensure that the calendars are created with the correct settings.
The settings you can adjust here include the following:
Locale This setting determines the world region, such as English (US) or English (UK). This
will determine such things as the way dates are displayed (3/28/2010 or 28/3/2010), decimal
points or decimal commas, and other regional-specific modifiers.
Sort Order This setting changes the sort order for lists and libraries. The sort order
determines the way alphabetically sorted lists are handled. Certain languages have different sort
orders for characters. Although American English speakers are used to seeing X-Y-Z at the
end of the alphabet, users in other regions may not be.
