Web Page

The basic unit of information on the Web

A Web page is the basic unit of information on the World Wide Web. Web pages can include text, images, animations, forms, and hyperlinks, and they are written in a language called the HyperText Markup Language (HTML). You can access them by using a Web browser, which is a software application that interprets the HTML and presents the page in a form you can read. A Web page’s location on the Internet is given by the Uniform Resource Locater (URL), which appears in the Address bar of your Web browser.

A group of Web pages that are connected to each other is called a Web site. The term "Web site" can also refer to the top-level, or "home" page of a Web site.

There are a number of software tools available that allow you to design Web pages without knowing HTML. Some of the more popular tools are Macromedia Dreamweaver , Microsoft FrontPage , and Apple iWeb .
