This issue combines a retrospective of the Web over the five years of
its existence with papers from the 5th International WWW Conference
and reports on work in progress.

A number of papers look technically at performance and traffic, but
there is a strong emphasis on assessment and polling.  There are
surveys of use, and surveys of surveys.

Work in progress reports on objects, lexical analysis of HTML and SGML, and
extended log file formats.

This issue looks at, and celebrates, new developments that enhance the
ability, and flexibility, of the Web to deal with varied, difficult,
and challenging problems.

HTTP, the HyperText Transfer Protocol foundation for the Web, has just
reached version 1.1.  (Yes, while Netscape and Internet Explorer are
at 3.0, and HTML is at 3.2, the basics take a little longer to
develop.)  This will provide more effective use of network resources.

PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is announced as the new "recommended"
standard for images, replacing GIF.

The work on the PICS (Platform for Internet Content Selection) 1.1 rating
system is also reported.
