NOTE: Microsoft offers an excellent WWW on-line tutorial (click here to go to it)
A. Each WWW computer has a name which is unique for that computer. Users of that computer can be reached by sending E-mail to username@computername. This is the user's "address" on the Internet.
B. One or many ".html" files are located in a specific subdirectory on that computer's hard drive. Each screen that pops up on your monitor represents one .html file.
C. "http:/" is the command that transfers the .html file from the remote computer to your computer.
D. You must have an account on a computer that allows Internet access (e.g. Buffnet, pcExpanders) or on-line service (e.g. Prodigy, America On-Line, Compuserve, Microsoft Network) that is connected to the WWW in order to retrieve .html files from other WWW computers.
E. Use a Web browser to retrieve information from the WWW.
A. A "home page" is the main .html file at a given WWW site that links you to all other information available at or from that site.
B. Links to other .html files (on the same or other computers) are highlighted in blue and underlined. Sometimes links are represented by buttons or graphics. Just click on them with your mouse and the new .html file and associated graphics files are transferred to your computer for your viewing pleasure!
