Quick Introduction to the World Wide Web (WWW) / Internet

The World Wide Web is an architectural framework for accessing linked documents spread out over thousands of machines all over the Internet. The World Wide Web began as a networked information project at CERN, where Tim Berners-Lee, now Director of the World Wide Web Consortium [W3C], developed a vision of the project.

The Web has a body of software, and a set of protocols and conventions. Through the use of hypertext and multimedia techniques, the web is easy for anyone to roam, browse, and contribute to.

World Wide Web can also be defined as system of Internet servers that support specially formatted documents. The documents are formatted in a markup language called HTML (HyperText Markup Language) that supports links to other documents, as well as graphics, audio, and video files. You can jump from one document to another simply by clicking on hot spots. Not all Internet servers are part of the World Wide Web. Web is basically a client-server system. Web pages are written in HTML and java.
