World Wide Web FAQ Copyright 1994, 1995, Thomas Boutell Introduction There are several World Wide Web newsgroups, and each of the groups has its own Frequently Asked Questions posting (except for comp.infosystems.www.advocacy). IMPORTANT: A set of answers to introductory web questions can be found in the newsgroup comp.infosystems.www.misc. If you do not have web access yet, please go to that newsgroup and read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) posting of that group first. This posting is only a pointer.
