Recent observational and theoretical results on starburst galaxies related to the wavelength regime below 1200A are discussed. The review covers stars, dust, as well as hot and cold gas. This wavelength region follows trends similar to those seen at longer wavelengths, with several notable exceptions. Even the youngest stellar populations show a turn-over in their spectral energy distributions, and line-blanketing is much more pronounced. Furthermore, the OVI line allows one to probe gas at…

It has long been uncertain how eﬀective the dust-corrected H 𝛼 -to-UV luminosity ratio ( 𝐿 ( H 𝛼 )/ 𝐿 ( UV ) ) is in probing bursty star-formation histories (SFHs) for high-redshift galaxies. To
