The World Wide Web is a collection of documents, multimedia files, and network services that are linked together by HyperText Markup Language (HTML). A person connected to the Internet can use a Web browser to look at this information, and can access the documents, files, and other services by clicking on the HTML links and buttons provided within the various Web pages. The information is transferred by the use of the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). (Many of the files are also accessible through other protocols, such as FTP.)

The World Wide Web?

On it's most basic level the Web is a global information database. The guiding principle of the web is universal readership - making information available to anyone at any computer from anywhere in the world.

If you want to learn more about the World Wide Web, we advise you to look around the Web itself-explore search engines for the topic, check out your favorite sites, surf around a bit by clicking on different links-you'll quickly see how the documents are all linked together. We also greatly respect many of the organizations that contribute to the growth of this dynamic environment; especially the World Wide Web Consortium-> (W3C); their History-> pages are a great place to start looking for information.
