World Wide Web – Beyond the Basics

World Wide Web - Beyond the Basics

World Wide Web – Beyond the Basics is a free online book about World Wide Web. The evolution of the World Wide Web has reached a stage where it is very easy for a user or an application developer to get lost in the day to day developments, rather than concentrating on the more fundamental issues.


New techniques and standards are being proposed every other day, which leads to a very nebulous view of existing WWW technology. There was a dire need for an information resource that structures the various facets of existing WWW technology into a comprehensible whole and also breaks it up into fundamental divisions. This book is an attempt to satisfy this need and much more. It is a product of a graduate level Computer Science course, “World Wide Web: Beyond the Basics”, which was taught by Dr. Marc Abrams at Virginia Tech in Fall ’96.

The material in the book caters to a dual audience: novice users of the WWW, who want a fundamental knowledge about existing and evolving Web technology, and professional users, who want in-depth infomation on specific topics. It tries to address 6 major issues surrounding the Web today.
