Chapter 1. Internet Basics > The World Wide Web

The World Wide Web

The World Wide Web—or simply the Web—is a part of the Internet that provides information, using documents that include one or more of these components:

  • Formatted text. Formatted text makes it more attractive and easier to read and understand. (Well, it's supposed to anyway.)

  • Images. Graphic images make Web information more visually appealing or can provide information that can't be provided with text. Other multimedia elements—including sounds, movies, and even interactive games—can also be found on the Web.

  • Hyperlinks. Links enable you to navigate from one piece of information to another with just a click.

  • Forms. Fill-in forms enable you to provide information that can be used to find information that interests you (in the case of a search form) or stored in a database (in the case of a database entry form).
