Web jargon

WWW - The World Wide Web

The WWW is a network of computers all over the world. The WWW is most often called the Web.

The computers on the Web communicate using standard protocols and languages.

The W3C (The World Wide Web Consortium) are making the rules and standards for the Web.

HTML - The Language of the Web

HTML is the language of the Web, and every Web developer should have a basic understanding of it.

With HTML you use "markup tags" to define the content and layout of your Web pages.

The HTML tag <h1> defines a primary header, and <p> defines a paragraph.

CSS - Cascading Style Sheets

Styles define how HTML elements are displayed, just like the <font> tag in older HTML.

When styles are saved in external files, you can change the style and appearance of all the HTML pages in your Web, just by changing your CSS document.

If you have ever tried to change the font or color of all the headings in all your Web pages, you will understand how CSS can save a lot of work.

JavaScript - Client Side Scripting

JavaScript is used for client-side scripting. Client-side scripting is about "programming" the Web browser.

To be able to deliver more dynamic web site content, you should teach yourself JavaScript.

A JavaScript statement like this: document.write("<p>" + date + "</p>") can write a variable text into an HTML page.

XML - Extensible Markup Language

XML is not a replacement for HTML. XML is used to describe and transport data, while HTML is used to display data.

XML and a number of different XML standards are rapidly becoming the most common tools for data transmission, data storing, and data manipulation.

Server Side Scripting

Server-side scripting is about "programming" the Web server.

To be able to deliver more dynamic web site content, you should teach yourself server-side scripting.

With server-side scripting, you can (amongst many other things) access databases and return the results to a browser.
