Post by Erik Wild » Tue, 17 Nov 1998 04:00:00


this week a new book covering the technical foundations of the world
wide web will be released by springer-verlag. the reader is provided
with a detailed overview of the most important technologies of the
web (including URI/URL, HTTP, SGML, HTML, CSS, XML, and many more),
with special emphasis on the way they interrelate with each other.
with its clear structure, this book can also be used as a reference
work for anyone who works with the different concepts that make up the
complex infrastructure of today's world wide web. further information
about the book, including a detailed table of contents, can be found

currently, there are many books dealing with individual issues, such
as HTML and CSS. however, there is no book covering all aspects of
web technology, providing a handy reference and overview for people
using the web professionally, or for those who are just curious to
know how the web works.


1. New Book: Big Book of World Wide Web RFCs

The emergence of the Web has done more to change Internetworking than
any of the hundreds of applications that once defined the Internet. This
volume includes all of the RFCs on the protocols determining how Web
pages work, how Web servers interact with Web browsers, and how Web
resources are identified and located by browsers and servers. This means
complete documentation of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), as well as the specifications for the
Universal Resource Identifier (URI), Universal Resource Locator (URL),
and Universal Resource Name (URN) mechanisms. This is essential,
low-level information for anyone building and maintaining Web sites or
designing and developing Web applications.
