This thoughtfully written volume uses the Internet as a central theme, studying its history, technology, and current use. Experimental problems use Web-based tools, enabling readers to learn programming fundamentals by developing their own interactive Web pages with HTML and JavaScript.

Covers a broad range of topics balanced with programming depth in a hands-on, tutorial style. Uses revised HTML and JavaScript code throughout (updated to match current XHTML 1.0 and ECMA-262 standards, respectively). Introduces event-driven pages earlier. Updates statistics on the Internet/Web and computer specifications. Provides new material throughout on recent developments and new technologies.

Appendices provide a useful reference for programmers.
