Abstract or Summary
  • As the World Wide Web continues to grow, people clearly want to do much more with it than just publish static pages of text and graphics. While such increased interactivity has traditionally been accomplished through the use of server-side CGI scripts, much recent research on Web browsers has been on extending their capabilities through the addition of various types of client-side services. The most popular of these extensions take the form of plug-ins, applets, and "document scripts" such as Java Script. However, because these extensions have been created in a haphazard way by a variety of independent groups, they suffer greatly in terms of flexibility, uniformity, and interoperability. Interactive HTML is a system that addresses these problems by combining plug-ins, applets, and document scripts into one uniform and cohesive architecture. It is implemented as an external C library that can be used by a browser programmer to add client-side services to the browser. The IHTML services are implemented as dynamically loaded "language modules," allowing new plug-ins and language interpreters to be added to an iHTML browser without recompiling the browser itself. The system is currently integrated with NCSA's X Mosaic browser and includes language modules for a text viewer plug-in and Python language interpreter. This thesis examines the iHTML architecture in the context of the historical development of Web client-side services and presents an example of iHTML's use to collect usage information about Web documents.
