On "configuration sets" what is the purpose of being able to have more than 1 config set? Is it just for different file types? For example, for xml and pdf output?

    The short answer is yes. Different Configurations allow you to manage multiple versions, or outputs, that your Page(s) have. They allow you to more easily manage/create an HTML, Mobile, PDF, XML (RSS Feed), etc. from one place.

    If both Configurations were publishing to the same Destination (you can publish specific Configurations to specific Destinations starting with Cascade 6.8), you could potentially have an issue. If both of the Configurations were going to the same place AND had the same output file extension, which ever Configuration published last would be the final version of that static page on your server.

    If you were publishing both Configurations to the same Destination, but they had different output file extensions, you shouldn't have an issue.

    Normally we don't see people having multiple HTML versions going to the same place. In the case that you're working with your full site and a mobile version (both HTML), the mobile version is usually published to a separate domain or subdomain so the files (potentially with the same system name and output file extension) would not collide.
