The Web:
The Web (or more properly, the World Wide Web) was developed at CERN in Switzerland as a new form of communicating text and graphics across the Internet making use of the hypertext markup language (HTML) as a way to describe the attributes of the text and the placement of graphics, sounds, or even movie clips. Since it was first introduced, the number of users has blossomed and the number of sites containing information and searchable archives has been growing at an unprecedented rate. It is now even possible to order your favourite Pizza Hut pizza in Santa Cruz via the Web!
