Item description for Wilde's Www: Technical Foundations of the World Wide Web by Erik Wilde...

The World Wide Web is undoubtedly the development of the decade in the media world. Since its beginnings in 1990, the WWW has evolved from a rather simple model of resource names (URL), a transfer protocol (HTTP), and a language for the description of interconnected information pages (HTML), to a far more complex infrastructure. This book gives a thorough technical description of all relevant WWW developments up to the time of writing, including the latest versions of the transfer protocol (HTTP/1.1) and description language (HTML 4.0), the foundations of the description language (SGML and its upcoming variant XML), style sheets (CSS1), server issues (SSL, CGI, and Apache as an example of a Web server), and some issues that will be of increasing importance in future (MathML, VRML, PNG).

Reviews - What do customers think about Wilde's Www: Technical Foundations of the World Wide Web?

Excellent, but dated  Dec 8, 2001
This book is an excellent compendium of most of the core web technologies. An added bonus is the author used LaTeX so its easy to read and well formatted.

Unfortunately this technology is moving so quickly that this book is already outdated. It is easier to track these technologies through online documents.

Basics First  Jun 7, 2001
When there are numerous technologies behind the internet or part of internet, one needs to have a macro view of related technoliges to do any sensible thing. If you are looking for such a macro view / total perspective of internet, this is the book to refer to. Even though one cannot expect to get details of numerous techologise in one single book, this book managed to cover the basics of most relevant technologies.
An almost complete survey of Web Technology  Aug 7, 1999
At first, a warning: reading through this book sometimes is not very entertaining, as the author tried to squeeze in as much information as possible. However, as a reference, it is almost invaluable, containing a huge glossary and a nice index. I especially liked the author's attempt to present the Web's many technologies in an interconnected way, providing readers with the opportunity to understand many dependencies between technologies. I heavily recommend this book to all people who are looking for a (almost) complete and extensive reference of Web technologies.
