    Administrators of wide-area IP networks-whether for Internet Service Providers or large corporate intranets-will face new and difficult challenges over the next few years. The growth of IP traffic is dwarfing the flat or modest growth rates of legacy (SNA, IPX) traffic. End-users are demanding consistently reliable performance for their network-based applications. Network managers are under pressu... View full abstract»

    Behind all the fancy tools that churn out volumes of messy HTML, there is a basic set of standardized HTML tags that all professional Webspinners must learn to master. It is important to understand these tags and how they work because despite recent advances in code-checking tools, debugging HTML often still comes down to hand-tweaking code with simple text editors like NotePad and BBEdit. The pap... View full abstract»
