The World Wide Web
The World Wide Web (WWW) is a distributed
hypertext database, that
is, a series of documents or "nodes" on machines all over the world
(distributed), connected together by easy-to-follow links (hypertext).
This provides an attractive and convenient way of accessing and presenting a
huge variety of material. WWW originated at the European Laboratory for
Particle Physics CERN. For more information
