Web Page

A Web Page is a simple compound document. Each piece of the document is either a text or picture file and has a unique "address," or "Uniform Resource Locator" which uniquely identifies this piece on the internet.

The text part of the page is simple "human readable" text interspaced with format/layout directives. These directives adhere to a convention called HTML.

Example:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>All About Prestressed Concrete<TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<B>Prestressed Concrete</B> is a fine material for beams in compression, such as roofs or bridges.
</BODY>
</HTML>
