The HTML Evolution
The HTML standard was altered by the rapid growth of
the World Wide Web.
The original standard allowed for
linked static content and very basic interactive
capabilites which were identified by the title of Common
Gateway Interfaces (CGI).
A large demand developed for richer features in the
static HTML such as the ability to center text. Many
companies started to include their own features or extensions.
In addition to improving the static content several
independent systems have been introduced to increase the
interactive capabilities of the World Wide Web.
It is difficult to compare these different systems
because the companies use different standards and
different histories when promoting their products.
This next generation of World Wide Web capabilities
will include Virtual Reality Markup Language (VRML) and Extensible Markup Language (XML).
