XP 2 * The Web is a collection of files that reside on computers, called Web servers. * Web servers are connected to each other through the Internet * The software you use to connect your computer to the Web server is your Web browser. * Common Web browsers are Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer * These browsers use a standard Graphical User Interface design
5 * Each computer on the Internet has an unique identification number, called an IP (Internet Protocol) address. * The IP addressing system currently in use on the Internet uses a four-part number. * Each part of the address is a number ranging from 0 to 255, and each part is separated from the previous part by a period, for example: 188.8.131.52. * Although each computer connected to the Internet has a unique IP address, most Web browsers use domain name addressing to locate Web sites and pages.
8 * Text files on Web servers are coded with HTML formatting tags that enable your browser to read text. * The tag that gives HTML its power, however, is the anchor tag. * Each anchor tag used in an HTML document, or Web page, creates a hypertext link or hypermedia link to other HTML documents or to other media. * These links are a different color than other text on the page, and are sometimes underlined. When you click the link, you connect to another Web page.
XP 11 * Use Internet Explorer's Favorites list to store and organize a list of Web pages that you have visited so you can return to them easily. * The Favorites button on the Standard Buttons toolbar opens the Add Favorite dialog box. * Use the Favorites list to open URLs you have stored as favorites. * Create folders to organize your favorites in the way that best suits your needs and working style. * Organize your folders in a hierarchical structure using the Organize button on the Favorites Explorer Bar.
XP 16 * Open the Web page containing the graphic you wish to display. * Right-click the graphic and select Save Picture As from the shortcut menu. * Navigate to where you want to save the picture, save the filename if necessary, and click the Save button.
XP 18 * E-mail, or electronic mail, is an efficient way to exchange messages with others on a network. * This network may be small and self-contained, such as within an office, or as large as the Internet. * E-mail messages can go to only one recipient or to dozens of recipients at once. * When you send a message, it travels through the network to an e-mail server. * The e-mail server stores messages until the recipient(s) request them.
XP 20 * You may have an e-mail account through a business network or you may create an e-mail account with a service that provides Internet access. * An e-mail address consists of: * A user name or login ID * The at symbol (@) * The name of the e-mail server
XP 21 * To access your e-mail account you also need an e- mail program, which is also called e-mail client software. * You use the e-mail program to open, print, delete, reply to, forward, and save mail from your e-mail server. * One such program is Microsoft's Outlook Express, which installs as part of Internet Explorer. * Outlook Express can be accessed through the Start menu on the All Programs submenu.
XP 23 * To send an e-mail message: * Press the New Mail button on the Outlook Express toolbar * Type in the e-mail addresses of the recipient * Type your subject matter * Type your message and then click the Send button * To retrieve mail that has been sent to you: * Click the Send/Recv button on the toolbar * Outlook Express will contact your e-mail server and download your e-mail messages * To reply to a message: * Click the Reply button * The recipient address and the subject matter are automatically filled in * When you have completed typing your reply, click the Send button
XP 26 * You can use the Address Book to keep track of all the people and organizations with which you correspond electronically. * You not only can store the e-mail addresses for your contacts, but also all other related information. * Click the Addresses button on the toolbar to open the Address Book, and then select New Contact from the New button on the toolbar.
XP 28 * To attach a file to a message, first create a new message and click the Attach button on the toolbar. * Browse for and select the file you wish to attach to the message. * After selecting the file, complete your message and click the Send button.
