Volume Description from the Publisher
HTML is the universal language of the World Wide
Web. It is the best known and most widely used application of
a more powerful and general language-SGML.
SGML: think of it as HTML with a whole lot more intelligence
With SGML, you can create documents that cost less
to update and organize, look better, and are much more useful.
Now, with SGML on the Web, you can use the extraordinary
power of SGML on the World Wide Web or your corporate intranet.
If you're already familiar with the benefits of HTML,
SGML on the Web builds on what you already know, showing
you the easiest ways to use SGML to add value to your documents.
Then, through more than forty (40) example documents and case
studies, you'll discover just how much you can accomplish with
- Dramatically easier document updates
- Computer-based training that can be delivered
more quickly than ever before
- Large documents that can assemble themselves
automatically from multiple sources
- Easy, quick access to related information, through
sophisticated SGML hyperlinks
The SGML on the Web CD-ROM includes everything
you need to make the most of SGML on the Web-starting with
SoftQuad Panorama PRO, a full-featured SGML browser. There's even
a powerful set of tools for creating and processing SGML documents.
It s time you supercharged your Web site or intranet
with the power of SGML-don't wait another day.
