Abstract

Krakatoa explodes onto the Web. Anyone who has finally just about got the hang of hypertext markup language for designing pages on the World Wide Web could be excused for burying their heads in the sand and hoping the latest development, Java, will go away. It is highly unlikely that it will, since Java is to HTML what freshly ground beans are to a cheap brand of instant. With HTML alone a typical Web page consists of static text and graphics, but Java allows a more proactive element to creep in that makes it far more responsive to the user's desires and needs.
