Web Sites

The World Wide Web supports the creation and transmission of an unlimited number of multimedia documents composed of text, graphics, animation, video, and audio. Multimedia Web documents are assembled and reside on computer servers scattered around the globe that can be accessed by anyone, anywhere, at any time.

Web communication is different from hard-copy publication because hypertext and the Web support nonsequential navigation through online documents that are in essence "authored" by readers as they follow one of a potentially unlimited number of pathways through a "document."

Guidelines for Composing Web Documents and Web Sites

Vast online archives of scientific and engineering reports are now available over the Web.
