WEB DEVELOPMENT

Websites on the Internet are based on ASCII
text files containing codes in the HTML
language.
Interpreter vs. compiler


HTML stands for HyperText Markup
Language.


Clicking on hypertext can take you anywhere


There are many software programs that will
create HTML for you, but learning HTML
yourself does not limit you to their limited
features.

Powerpoint
)

DHTML
-

Dynamic HTML is a term used to
describe HTML pages with dynamic content.
There are typically three components in
dynamic HTML; Cascading Style Sheets
(CSS), HTML itself and a scripting language.
The three components are glued together
with DOM, the Document Object Model.


DHTML is still in its infancy and unfortunately
the bells and whistles you can toot with
DHTML don’t always work with different
browsers.




WEB DEVELOPMENT

What's so special about Cascading style
sheets?

You can separate form and structure, and
control your page layout better.

CSS works well with dynamic pages and you
can easily maintain multiple pages at once.

One important downside is that CSS is not
recognized in earlier versions of Explorer and
Netscape browsers and not always
compatible between the new browsers.

Scripting Languages

Scripting languages give your webpage the
tremendous power of full programming
languages.


Scripting languages include:


JavaScript


Java


VisualBasic


CGI (C

The future language to replace HTML?? I doubt it.


eXtensible Markup Language has been designed by
the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3c.org/).


Rather than defining a set of tags, XML is “extensible”
in that it allows customized tags. With XML, a
document’s content must be separate from its
format (like CSS), so its display could be different
depending on the formats. It might benefit

handheld devices and cellular
-
phone displays.
