At its inception, the Web was all about information. Visual design wasaccidental at best. Web pages were clumsily assembled, and Web sites were accu-mulations of hyperlinked documents lacking structure or coherence. Designersthen took over and constructed attractive, eccentric, and often baffling containersfor information. The Web became a better-looking place, but many users hit bar-riers of large graphics, complex layouts, and nonstandard coding. Every site wasdifferent, and each required users to relearn how to use the Web, because “real”designers could not be bound by standards or conventions. Instead, designerspushed the boundaries of HTML, using work-arounds and hacks to design on thecutting edge.Today, Web design is seen much more as a craft than an art, where function takesprecedence over form and content is king. Innovative designs using fancy naviga-tional doodads are generally seen as an annoyance standing between the user andwhat he or she seeks. Large graphic eye candy, no matter how pleasing, is simplywasted bandwidth. Like 1960s architecture, much of yesterday’s Web design nowmakes users wince and wonder how it could ever have been fashionable. Now, ifyou want to be a Web designer, you also need to be an information architect andusability engineer. Instead of constantly requiring users to relearn the Web, sites arebeginning to look more alike and to employ the same metaphors and conventions.This plug-in introduces the functional aspects of Web design.LEARNING OUTCOMESbal76744_plugint09_002-025.indd T9-22/21/08 4:54:26 PM

*Plug-In T9Designing Web Pages*T9-3The World Wide WebLike other Internet services, the WorldWide Web is not a certain network,based on a certain computer. Instead,it is a way of organizing information sothat any computer around the worldthat operates according to the rules canaccess it. The rules that specify how toaccess and transfer files over the Webare calledHTTP,forhypertext transferprotocol.The Web was a breakthrough in manyways. Perhaps its most important fea-ture, though, is its use ofhypertext.Textand other content in a Web documentcan be made to link to any other document, anywhere in the world, that is saved onan HTTP server and connected to the Internet. AnHTTP serveris a computer that isresponsible for accepting HTTP requests from clients, known as Web browsers, andserving them Web pages, which are usually HTML documents (which we describebelow).Figure T9.1 displays the relationship between HTTP (or Web) server, Webbrowser, and Web page.
