Supersoft X-ray sources constitute a fascinating class of X-ray systems. Some of these sources consist of a compact object accreting material from a binary companion. The analysis of X-ray and optical spectra discloses valuable information on the exact nature and temporal variation of the extremely powerful physical processes involved.
