Mastering ImageReady

Back in the early days of the Internet, there was only text on the screen. In 1993, we first saw a graphical interface called Mosaic. It was based on HyperText Markup Language (HTML), which was a series of tags applied to the contents of the web page. In the case of text, the tags described the font, size, and color to be used, and where to start the text string. For graphics, the HTML tag included the name of the picture, its location in a folder, and its placement on the web page. The main point about HTML was—and still is—that it's a universal language. What you see on your screen as you design a page is pretty much identical to what a viewer on a different computer system and perhaps halfway around the world sees. Today, there are at least a half a dozen different browsers in use, and they all interpret HTML the same way.
