Review:
We all know how fast new pages are going up on the World Wide Web. Students who need reliable, intelligible information, will do fine with the second edition of this fat, sassy, and useful Net directory. Whether students are researching Japanese table manners, carnivorous plants, or the Latvian embassy, they'll be able to locate their subject matter of choice with this book. There are enough relevant sites in this energetic volume to satisfy the most curious of young scholars.

Review:
This is, as the name suggests, a miscellany of information, resources and trivia accessible over the Internet. The number of entries is less than the size of the book would suggest, since many items appear more than once, in different topic sections. The material is thus very far from being complete, while certain areas contain items that are only very loosely related. (Travel, for example, has entries on history and government resources.) The "multiple listings" are a good idea, since neither the table of contents nor the index may help, at times. (The Internet Coffee Machine, for example, is not listed in the index, nor does it appear under "Food and Drink", although an image from it does. The actual entry is listed under "Cybercu...

Review:
The Virtual Reality Modeling Language, or VRML, is a "space description" language. It can be used as a standard for creating "3-space" artificial reality scenes. VRML also has the hypertext "linking" capability of HTML, the basis of the World Wide Web, and so, with an appropriate browser, can be used to create three dimensional extensions to the Web. This book provides a good introductory tutorial to the Virtual Reality Modeling Language for basic and intermediate usage. Within the limits of the printed page, the authors have provided a clear and solid introduction. Creating, rotating and moving simple and even complex shapes is given lucid and step-by-step explanations. (One suspects that instancing could have been covered earlier...

Book description
The key specifications that describe the architecture of the World Wide Web and how it works are maintained online at the World Wide Web Consortium. This issue of the World Wide Web Journal collects these key papers in a single volume as an important reference for the webmaster, application programmer, or technical manager. In this valuable reference, you'll find the definitive specifications for the core technologies in the Web: Hyptertext Markup Language (HTML), Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs); plus the emerging standards for portable graphics (PNG), content selection (PICS), and style sheets (CSS).

Book description
Web surfing is a dangerous sport -- we are always at risk while downloading "cool" new applets, protecting secure information services, and even in trusting that a Web page comes from the stated author. The interviews, specifications, and articles in this issue of the World Wide Web Journal reframe the debate as a matter of trust rather than cryptography. This issue covers W3C's Digital Signature Initiative (DSI), which breaks new ground in this area by binding machine-readable labels to public key signatures. Other topics include medical records privacy issues (Lincoln Stein), signature legality (C. Bradford Biddle), trust in Internet information systems (Rohit Khare), the PGP Web of Trust (Simson Garfinkel), REFEREE: a trust management sy... Rest of this review on the detail page
