    Our experience is typical of what happened at many Web sites in 1998, and this trend will likely accelerate as more sites drop support for older browsers in favour of the ease and strength of style sheets. It seems clear at this point that 1999 will be a watershed year for CSS. The new CSS2 specification builds on CSS1, greatly broadening the application areas. It includes the following major enha...

    Many organizations are beginning to discover what workflow vendors already know-namely, that the real value of the Web lies not just in its documents and resources, but also in the activities surrounding them. Collaborative work involves not only handoff and routing of data between humans, but the coordination of activities among them and with automated agents as well. Workflow engines typically e...

    Communication satellites are now being used to transport TCP/IP traffic between distant locations, and to offer Internet access. Satellites have thus become the celestial link of the Internet, an “instant” infrastructure in the sky. The rapid growth of satellite communications is evolving the TCP/IP protocol suite in positive ways. In particular, enhancements to the Transmission Contro... View full abstract»

    Everyone knew there had to be an easier way to use the Internet than the Unix shell experience, mind you, but original editions of the Gopher and HyperText Transfer Protocols were painfully trivial hacks that did nothing FTP didn't already handle. So here begins our mysterious tale: why either protocol ever rose to prominence in the first place; and how the fratricidal drama eventually played out.... View full abstract»

    Most of us will soon be managing an intranet in our homes, though we might not realize it. We might also be surprised at the devices that will be networked together. Just about every electrical device now contains one or more microprocessors. Designers typically find this a cost-effective way to provide device functionality, even when much of a processor's power is unnecessary or unused. For examp... View full abstract»

    Most Web applications are still developed ad hoc. One reason is the gap between established software design concepts and the low-level Web implementation model. We summarize work on WebComposition, a model for Web application development, then introduce the WebComposition Markup Language, an XML-based language that implements the model. WCML embodies object-oriented principles such as modularity, ... View full abstract»

    Many Web sites give the user a structure, such as a site map, to interact with. When debis (Daimler-Chrysler Inter Services, the services company of the Daimler-Chrysler Group) decided to offer information about car financing on its popular Web site, the company knew it faced a serious design challenge. The paper considers how Daimler-Chrysler Research designed a simple interface to a dynamic simu... View full abstract»

    Developers manipulating Web documents to provide user interaction need a standard interface to those documents. The paper discusses the W3C Document Object Model Level 1 which defines the standardized interface. The DOM Level 1 defines a language- and platform-neutral API for accessing, navigating and manipulating HTML and XML documents. As such, it is a foundation for the development of applicati...
