Wilde's WWW: Technical Foundations of the World Wide Web (Hardcover)
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 its upcoming variant 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).
