THE WEB AND BEYOND


UNIFORM RESOURCE LOCATORS

Just as a domain names and e-mail addresses are used to access servers and contact people,the World Wide Web uses Uniform Resource Locators(URLs)to reference resources on the web. You need to know–or be able to find–a Web page’s URL in order to access it. A URL identifies where a resource is located and what type of  resource it is. There is a specific format which all URLs follow. Let us look at sample URL: http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Status.html

To many this may seem like a typically cryptic and obtuse piece of  “Computerese,” but as you will see, once you break a URL down to it’s component parts, it is not that difficult to understand:http://www.info-galore.com/Valentine.html

As  computer technology improved ,allowing one to include graphics,sound effects,and animation in hypertext documents,the term hypermedia was coined to describe these linked documents that contained much more than just text. Hypertext and hypermedia applications are already quite popular in the PC world. If yo are a designer ,get a software that is right for the task at hand: http://info-galore.com/Design-Software.php
