The following is an extensive list of HTML resources with comment has been compiled by: Michael J. Hannah Sandia National Laboratories firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/MarkUp.html The general home page for HTML information at WWW. http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/html-spec/L2index.html 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 was: http://www.hal.com/users/connolly/html-spec/htmlindex.html http://www.sil.org/sgml/sgml.html An excellent starting page for information on SGML. http://www.ucc.ie/~pflynn/books/htmlcard.html 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. http://lcweb.loc.gov/global/html.html The Library of Congress index of links about HTML. http://www.utoronto.ca/webdocs/HTMLdocs/NewHTML/htmlindex.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 extensions. http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/SDG/Software/Mosaic/Docs/fill-out-forms/overv iew.html Documentation of Mosiac for X version 2.0 fill-out form support. http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/General/Internet/WWW/HTMLPrimer.html The HTML Primer developed by NCAR. http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/HTML.html 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. http://kuhttp.cc.ukans.edu/lynx_help/HTML_quick.html A quick reference to the "most commonly used elements" of HTML Version 1 and 2 by Michael Grobe. http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/html-spec/html.dtd 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: http://www.hal.com/users/connolly/html-spec/html-pubtext.html http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/html/html2/index.html 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.

Many extensions are mentioned but not documented. http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/overview.html 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. http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/docs/tutorials/imagemapping.html 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 included: http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/docs/setup/admin/Imagemap.html and http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/docs/setup/admin/NewImagemap.html http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/HTMLPlus/htmlplus_1.html HTML+ (a superset of Version 2, and the precursor to Version 3) as of 8 Nov 1993, by David Raggett. Includes some interesting possibilities. http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/Arena/tour/start.html An overview of the proposed features of Version 3, and identification of those proposals likely to be deferred until Version 3.1.

This used to be (and still is) located at: http://www.willamette.edu/html-composition/strict-html.html but the new location has been updated. http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/Provider/Style/Overview.html The Style Guide at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT, written by Tim Berners-Lee. http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/ A list of W3C Tech Reports, which currently only lists the latest proposal for standardization of tables as an extension to RFC 1866. http://www.javasoft.com/JDK-beta/filesinkit/README 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. ftp://ftp.isi.edu/internet-drafts/ 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 draft-ietf-html-clientsideimagemap-01.txt. _________________________________________________________________
