What is the Internet?

The Internet is a collection of computers (called servers) scattered all over the world and connected together by telephone lines. The World Wide Web is a only one part of the internet The name ´World Wide Webb (WWW)´ comes from the fact that all these computers are linked together in a web-like fashion, the backbone. And each of these computers can store thousands of Web Sites.

What is a Web site?

A Web Site consists of starting page (Homepage) and several web pages. These pages are coded. The code that allows you to view the information on the page is called HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). The most current version is 4.0. This code can store other codes imbedded within its own code. The most popular are Java (SUN) and Active X (Microsoft). The strength of HTML is that it is independent of the sort of computer. This means that PC's as well as Macintoshes can read the same code. The codes is very simple: it contains links to graphics and other pages (with the use of "tags"), that are located on the same computer or a completely different one.

When you see a page on your screen, it came from a computer that could be located anywhere in the world. When you click on a link and receive a page, you don't actually need to know which Web site that page came from or where (geographically) that web site is located. Without doing any programming you switch from one computer to the other (surfing) en receive Web pages from all over the world by simply clicking on links with your mouse.

The HTML history

HTML was originally developed by Tim Berners-Lee while at CERN, and popularized by the Mosaic browser developed at NCSA. During the course of the 1990s it has blossomed with the explosive growth of the Web. During this time, HTML has been extended in a number of ways. The current version is called 4.0. HTML 4.0 extends HTML with mechanisms for style sheets, scripting, frames, embedding objects, improved support for right to left and mixed direction text, richer tables, and enhancements to forms, offering improved accessibility for people with disabilities. If you are interested in the syntax of HTML 4.0, you can find the information here.

Can I catch a virus while surfing?

Yes, but it is highly unlikely. Viruses cannot be transmitted via Web pages. The way viruses are transmitted is when files are transferred (downloaded) from one computer to another. When you download a file, there is always the possibility the file contains a virus. However, computer viruses can only exist in 'executable programs' or in macro's. Viruses do not travel with files consisting of text, picture or sound.

If you feel uncertain about viruses, download only files from people you know or install a virus checker (program that scan files on viruses). Virus checkers are available as stand-alone programs or can be integrated in your browser. For more information, click here.

Where can I find information on my favorite hobby?

This can be very tricky, even if you are familiar with search engines. The last few years the web is tremendously expanding, that it becomes more and more difficult to find the exact information you need. Try to narrow down your search by being as specific as you can. There are a lot of search engines to choose from. Here is a good one : http://www.google.com.

Once you are at a search engine....type in the hobby of your choice and hit enter.

Addresses are used to define the location of a computer connected to the Internet, or a file or piece of information on a computer connected to the Internet. Generally speaking, there are several types of addresses: e-mail, URL, and newsgroup.

E-mail addresses example: yourname@yourprovider.com.
