The following are links to HTML relevant sites.

    The following is an extensive list of HTML resources with comment
    has been compiled by:

    Michael J. Hannah
    Sandia National Laboratories

          The general home page for HTML information at WWW.

          This November 1994 alphabetical listing of HTML elements for
          the proposed Version 2, constructed by Dan Connolly, formed the
          original structure of this document. Prior to Dan Connolly's
          move to World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT, this reference

          An excellent starting page for information on SGML.

          A quick reference card to the HTML elements, organized by
          logical function. This card appears in printed form in Spinning
          the Web (ISBN 1-850-32141-8) by Andrew Ford, and The
          WorldWideWeb Handbook (ISBN 1-850-32205-8) by Peter Flynn, both
          published by International Thomson Computer Press.

          The Library of Congress index of links about HTML.

          A book on HTML Documentation by Ian Graham which I believe has
          by now been published. Ian has informed me (as of Jan 96) that
          this collection is recently updated and reorganized, and now
          covers additional material, including Microsoft and Netscape

          Documentation of Mosiac for X version 2.0 fill-out form

          The HTML Primer developed by NCAR.

          A set of pointers to various publications about HTML including
          the draft 1.2 of Internet MIME Content Type (RFC 1341) which
          expired 13 Jan 1994. That was a description of Version 1 HTML
          written by Tim Berners-Lee and Daniel Connolly.

          A quick reference to the "most commonly used elements" of HTML
          Version 1 and 2 by Michael Grobe.

          The Document Type Definition (DTD) of the Version 2
          specification for HTML. Prior to Dan Connolly's move to World
          Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT, this reference was:

          HTML Version 2 as of 29 Nov 1994 as an Internet Media Type (RFC
          1590) and MIME Content Type (RFC 1521) written by Tim
          Berners-Lee and Daniel Connolly. This link no longer exists.

          The text of HTML Version 2.0.

          The description of the extensions to HTML used by Netscape,
          Version 1.0.

          The description of the extensions to HTML used by Netscape,
          Version 1.1. and

          The description of the extensions to HTML used by Netscape,
          Version 2.0.

          The description of the extensions to HTML used by Microsoft
          Internet Explorer, Version 2.0. This is labeled beta
          documentation, and the last time I accessed it was very
          incomplete. Many extensions are mentioned but not documented.

          This document appears to be a definitive reference to the
          Common Gateway Interface, which describes the structure of
          cgi-bin programs. These programs are required for the ISMAP
          attribute of the IMG element, as well as for processing FORM
          element input.

          This is a comprehensive tutorial on imagemapping. It includes a
          discussion of an NCSA image map utility. This is a cgi-bin
          program that is useful with the ISMAP attribute on the IMG
          element. Earlier, but now obsolete, references to this utility

          HTML+ (a superset of Version 2, and the precursor to Version 3)
          as of 8 Nov 1993, by David Raggett. Includes some interesting

          An overview of the proposed features of Version 3, and
          identification of those proposals likely to be deferred until
          Version 3.1. Also identifies access to a test browser designed
          to display the new Version 3.0 features as part of the review

          An early draft of the text for a proposed Version 3 as a (now
          expired) Internet RFC by David Raggett. This link is identical

          An excellent analysis of the relationship of the ISO8859
          Latin-1 character set with HTML entities, including
          representational tables, identification of browser
          implementation inconsistencies and differing/invalid

          This is my personal favorite of the many documents describing
          how to write good HTML, including "Common Errors" and "Things
          to Avoid". This used to be (and still is) located at:
          the new location has been updated.

          The Style Guide at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT,
          written by Tim Berners-Lee.

          A list of W3C Tech Reports, which currently only lists the
          latest proposal for standardization of tables as an extension
          to RFC 1866.

          The extensions to HTML required to access Java(tm) applets,
          Version Beta 1.0. Note that the HTML tag changed from APP to
          APPLET from pre-beta to beta.

          The site I use to retrieve internet-drafts. These include
          drafts of proposals being considered by the HTML Working Group
          developing extensions to RFC 1866. Two specific proposals
          reviewed for inclusion in this Reference Manual were
          draft-ietf-html-fileupload-03.txt and
