The World Wide Web (WWW) is an open source information space where documents and other web resources are identified by URLs, interlinked by hypertext links, and can be accessed via the Internet. It has become known simply as the Web. The World Wide Web was central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.
The World Wide Web was invented by English scientist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN in Switzerland.
Web pages are primarily text documents formatted and annotated with Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). In addition to formatted text, web pages may contain images, video, and software components that are rendered in the user's web browser as coherent pages of multimedia content. Embedded hyperlinks permit users to navigate between web pages.
Multiple web pages with a common theme, a common domain name, or both, may be called a website. Website content can largely be provided by the publisher, or interactive where users contribute content or the content depends upon the user or their actions. Websites may be mostly informative, primarily for entertainment, or largely for commercial purposes.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. Led by Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C's mission is to lead the Web to its full potential.

New on HTMLGoodies: Test Your HTML
We've added a new feature to HTMLGoodies for web developers. Whenever we publish a new tutorial, developers will be able to test the HTML out directly from the tutorial page! Try it out!
The History of HTML Goodies
It was around 1992, when the Web was still something most people had never heard about. A new browser called Netscape 1.0 had come out, and with it came the seeds that would eventually become HTML Goodies.
The map of the Internet
Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet.
Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle.
Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.
Request for Comments (RFC)
is a type of publication from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Society, the principal technical development and standards-setting bodies for the Internet.
An RFC is authored by engineers and computer scientists in the form of a memorandum describing methods, behaviors, research, or innovations applicable to the working of the Internet and Internet-connected systems. It is submitted either for peer review or simply to convey new concepts, information, or (occasionally) engineering humor.
The IETF adopts some of the proposals published as RFCs as Internet Standards.
Request for Comments documents were invented by Steve Crocker in 1969 to help record unofficial notes on the development of ARPANET. RFCs have since become official documents of Internet specifications, communications protocols, procedures, and events.
TeleGeography is a telecommunications market research and consulting firm. We conduct in-depth research, compile large data sets, and present this information clearly in online reports and databases.
Since 1989, our data have provided guidance to thousands of clients, including service providers, equipment makers, investors, and governments. Our goal is not to cover all segments of the telecom industry. Instead, we conduct in-depth, primary research on a limited number of key subjects.
Our focus allows us to generate uniquely detailed metrics that are not available from any other source—in fact, dozens of prominent research and consulting firms subscribe to TeleGeography services. We provide users with access to these detailed data sets through online databases; drawing from the data, we also offer cogent analysis and clear graphics that shed light on the trends shaping the industry.
Our primary research areas include:
TeleGeography is also the founder of the WAN Summit, a biannual conference in New York and London bringing
together buyers and providers of enterprise WAN services to identify and discuss trends in international network
planning, procurement, and design.

Originally created in 1998, by Refsnes Data, a Norwegian software development and consulting company. The focus is on simplicity, practicing easy and straight-forward learning. Simple code explanations are given and illustration on how to use it. The tutorials start from basic level, and move all the way up to complete professional references with thousands of code examples.
By using an online editor (Try It Yourself), you can edit examples and execute computer code experimentally, to see what works and what does not, before implementing it.
W3Schools is, and will always be, a completely free developers resource.
