Whole Web Catalog Garage Cascading Style Sheets--ZDNet
The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Cascading Style Sheets Page
Cascading style sheets allow for greater control over how a web document is
presented, and these two sites can help interested users learn about them.
The Whole Web Catalog Garage, provided by ZDNet, offers a guide to
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). It presently features an article, written by
Dave Dayneko, that focuses on defining text attributes, since this is the
one element that most browsers tend to agree on in their support of CSS.
The guide offers links to related ZDNet articles and other relevant
resources. W3C's CSS page offers even more information regarding CSS, it's
history, and what's new. It also provides a listing of other related guides
and tools (Scout Report, 5 Sept. 1997).
- Tenmax: Has program for downloading an entire site.
- Cetus Links--Object
Orientation: Cetus Links, originally provided by programmer Manfred
Schneider, and now
maintained by a team of seven programmers, contains over 5,500 links to web
sites, newsgroups, and mailing lists dealing with object orientation. It is
divided into sections on distributed objects, OOA&D methods and tools,
languages (over 20 at present, from Ada to Visual C++), databases, and
advanced topics (patterns, libraries, frameworks, reuse, testing, and
numerics). While the individual links usually provide no more than author
information, each section is divided by both access protocol and theme.
These divisions are quite rudimentary (for example, most sections are
divided by such subsection headings as: introductory, further info,
general, books, conferences, resources, etc.).
Shockwave]: The DHTML Zone is provided by Macromedia Inc., and offers an
abundance of resources to help add Dynamic HTML to a website. The basics are
covered in articles, tutorials, a discussion group, and DHTML demos. For those
interested in incorporating DHTML and Shockwave together, there is an entire
section devoted to accomplishing this. A listing of other resources which
include reference guides, more articles, demos, tutorials, and information on
Netscape Communicator 4.0 and Internet Explorer 4.O is also provided (Scout
Report, 17 Oct. 1997).
If you're one of many Web developers and analysts who believe the future of
HTML, the markup language of the Web, is in trouble because of its
limitations, you might want to bookmark a reference site called XML, the
Extensible Markup Language. Under development by the World Wide Web
Consortium (the folks behind the growing movement from HTML 3.0 to the more
versatile version 4.0), XML is a less complex version of SGML (Standard
Generalized Markup Language), which is also the parent of HTML. (Love
development, love acronyms.) This site is likely to be seminal in the
infancy of XML. It has a solid selection of links to specifications, work
in progress, articles, seminars, document definition types (DTDs) for
chemical and mathematical markup, and external links to XML documentation
at Microsoft and elsewhere. Long-range Web planners will want to start here.
- W3C Issues First Public Draft of Document Object Model
First Draft Specification
The first draft of the DOM specification (Core Level 1) has been released by
the World Wide Web Consortium. The Document Object Model "is a platform- and
language-neutral interface that will allow programs and scripts to dynamically
access and update the content, structure and style of documents. The document
can be further processed and the results of that processing can be
incorporated back into the presented page." The site contains explanation of
DOM and other pertinent information, a press release announcing the draft, and
the draft specification itself (Scout Report, 10 Oct. 1997).

Users are free to decide whether or not to use SiteMap and MailCast
together. Currently hundreds of popular sites are already mapped.

through the process of how to create CGI's to enable them to process a form,
create a guest book, and add a page counter to a web site. The tutorial
assumes a basic understanding of Perl and access to a Unix platform for
running the CGIs. The tutorial also provides additional Perl resources.

- Bonus.com: The SuperSite for Kids
[Java]:Bonus.com, provided by Apaloosa Interactive Corporation, is
both content and style. Part activities meta-site, part virtual toybox, it
allows children to find hundreds of fun, interactive online things to do,
including "games, coloring books, puzzles, and photo galleries," in
sections entitled Play, Color, Explore, Dissect, and Imagine. More
innovative, however, is the "NetScooter" technology employed to create a
Bonus browser and hide the regular browser behind it. In this way, a
"fence" is built around the Bonus site, which, while allowing navigation
within the site, keeps your child out of the Internet at large. While this
will not foil older, more Internet-savvy children, it is a wonderful way to
protect younger children from stumbling onto some of the more unsavory
Internet sites--although they'll probably be having so much fun with this
site that you'll have to tear them away from it. Note that many of the
activities are Java-based and browser intensive, and that parents should
read the help files for more information on features and navigation.
