Overview

The World Wide Web is undoubtedly the development of the decade in the media world. Since its beginnings in 1990, the WWW has evolved from a rather simple model of resource names (URL), a transfer protocol (HTTP), and a language for the description of interconnected information pages (HTML), to a far more complex infrastructure. This book gives a thorough technical description of all relevant WWW developments up to the time of writing, including the latest versions of the transfer protocol (HTTP/1.1) and description language (HTML 4.0), the foundations of the description language (SGML and XML), style sheets (CSS1), server issues (SSL, CGI, and Apache as an example of a Web server), and some issues that will be of increasing importance in future (MathML, VRML, PNG).
