Internet Definitions

HTML: (HyperText Markup Language) The coding language used to create Hypertext
documents (web pages) for use on the World Wide Web. Browsers like Netscape and 
read pages coded in HTML and present the results in a formatted and readable
manner. As HTML evolves and becomes more complex, so do the web browsers that
interpret HTML.

HTTP: (HyperText Transfer Protocol) The protocol used for moving hypertext files
(web pages) across the WWW. Requires a HTTP client program on one end and an 
server program on the other end. For those who were wondering why every web site
address was preceded by "http://";, now you know.

HYPERTEXT: A term used to describe nonlinear writing in which associative paths
are followed through a world of interrelated text documents. The term is often
used in relation to web pages and sites but hypertext has practical application
off the Web as well.
