    10631063          You can delete items either from the list view or from
    1064           a single-item view. In both cases, the item is only moved to
    1065           the trashcan. No information is deleted from the database. This allows
    1066           you to restore the item if you later find out that you need it again.

    10671067          In fact, there is nothing special about a removed item. It can still be
    10681068          used for the same things as any non-removed item can.

    1103           You can restore deleted items either from the trashcan,

     1899        All items that have been deleted, and are owned by you, are
     1900        listed in your trashcan. This list page is accessed with
     1901        <menuchoice>
     1902          <guimenu>View</guimenu>
     1903          <guimenuitem>Trashcan</guimenuitem>
     1904        </menuchoice>
     1905        and it differs a bit from the other common list pages. The
     1906        most significant difference is that the trashcan page can
     1907        contain more then one item type, actually all removable item
     1908        types in BASE can be listed in the trascan. Items that neither
     1909        can be removed or deleted, <emphasis>i.e.,</emphasis> items
     1910        like sessions, nor clients' help texts since these are deleted
     1911        from the database immediately in list/item view will be shown
     1912        in the trashcan page.

     1915        <para>
     1916          Some item types do not have any owner and these are listed
     1917          in the trashcans for everyone with delete permission on that
     1918          specific item type.

     1923        Things that the trashcan page have in common with other list
     1924        pages are the possibility to restore and view/edit items, see
     1925        <xref linkend="webclient.items.restore" /> and
     1926        <xref linkend="webclient.items.edit" /> . If an item is
     1927        restored, it will of course disappear from the trashcan.

     1933          Items can be permanently deleted from BASE only if they are
     1934          not used by other items.  Items that are used have the icon

     1945              This view is NOT the same view page as when clicking on

     1952          To delete one or several items permanently from the trashcan
     1953          you first have to select them and then to click on the
     1954          &gbDelete; button. Press then on either &gbOk; (completes
     1955          the deletion) or &gbCancel; (no items will be deleted) in

     1963            the <guibutton>Empty trash</guibutton> button can be
