Hypertext Markup Language - 2.0

  title={Hypertext Markup Language - 2.0},
  author={Tim Berners-Lee and Dan Connolly},
The Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is a simple markup language used to create hypertext documents that are platform independent. HTML documents are SGML documents with generic semantics that are appropriate for representing information from a wide range of domains. HTML markup can represent hypertext news, mail, documentation, and hypermedia; menus of options; database query results; simple structured documents with in-lined graphics; and hypertext views of existing bodies of information. 

Internationalization of the Hypertext Markup Language

The Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is a markup language used to create hypertext documents that are platform independent and widely used with other languages, at the expense of interoperability.


This document is meant to address the issue of the internationalization (i18n, i followed by 18 letters followed by n) of HTML by extending the specification of HTML and giving additional recommendations for proper internationalization support.

HTML 4.0 Specification

This specification defines the HyperText Markup Language (HTML), version 4.0, the publishing language of the World Wide Web, which supports more multimedia options, scripting languages, style sheets, better printing facilities, and documents that are more accessible to users with disabilities.

Processing structured hypermedia - a matter of style

This book describes the areas of hypertext, multimedia, electronic publishing and the World Wide Web and points out fundamental similarities and differences in approaches towards the processing of information.

A declarative language for querying and restructuring the Web

This work develops a simple logic called WebLog that is capable of retrieving information from HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) documents in the Web, inspired by SchemaLog, a logic for multidatabase interoperability.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol - HTTP/1.0

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol is an application-level protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems, which can be used for many tasks beyond its use for hypertext through extension of its request methods, error codes and headers.

A Web Browser and Editor

Interval trees and nested interval trees, the new data structures described in this thesis, permit any portion of an HTML document to be edited without requiring the rendering of the entire document.

Markup Languages: More Than HTML5

The latest core version and by far the most popular markup language of the World Wide Web, HTML5, introduced new structuring elements as well as multimedia element annotations that can be used to create rather sophisticated document structures.

Typographic sheets and structured documents

This paper shows how the specification of typographic sheets can help apply typographic control to structured documents by providing a mapping between elements and typographic properties.

Design of the Presetnation Language for Distributed Hypermedia System

A new control language for the Dynamic Hypermedia system, HMML, which controls multimedia presentations by extending HTML is described, which is needed for providing lip synchronization and complicated scene synchronization which guarantees QoS requirements.

MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) Part One: Mechanisms for Specifying and Describing the Format of Internet Message Bodies

This document redefines the format ofmessage bodies to allow multi-part textual and non-textual message bodies to be represented and exchanged without loss of information.

Uniform Resource Locators (URL)

This document specifies a Uniform Resource Locator (URL), the syntax and semantics of formalized information for location and access of resources via the Internet.
