Commonly Used Internet Terms

You'll find it easier to participate more fully in the direction of your web goals if you are able to understand common Internet terminology. Basic Net literacy is useful in making decisions with your web developer, your service provider and people who will send you e-mail.

Ultimately there are hundreds if not thousands of terms invented for Internet technology. Following is a glossary of terms you should familiarize:

  • 640 x 480 pixels (lowest) - (8.8 in. wide x 6.67 in long)
  • 800 x 600 pixels (typical) (11.1 in. wide x 8.3 in long)
  • 1024 x 768 pixels (highest) (14.2 in wide x 10.7 in long)
  • These measures do not refer to the actual screen size. They refer to the collective size of the "desktop" or single document that will be viewable on the monitor screen at those settings. Resolution settings are a critical and potentially complex obstacle especially for inexperienced web developers. Web developers typically design pages that look best at the middle (800 x 600) setting but will also fit any monitor screen using the lowest setting of 640 x 480 pixels. Incidentally, monitor sizes are not a critical factor since a huge monitor set at any of the above settings will display the same screen as a tiny monitor. The larger monitors merely spread out the same screen display and offer the luxury of using higher resolution settings with better visibility. Unlike published hardcopy. most web pages are created using elements that shift position in what can be referred to as a "relative display state" (I made that term up). This means that a web page usually looks diferrent depending on two major factors:

    Additionally, the font sizing in web pages has relative complexities. Typically text is set at a size that will provide comfortable reading at the middle (800 x 600) monitor resolution. Graphic text (text that has been made into a graphic), such as title banners and so forth, are likewise usually designed to work well with the 640 x 400 and 800 x 600 settings. Web pages designed for the 1024 x 768 pixel monitor settings are typically a disaster since the common (800 x 600) user ends up having to scroll sideways to see the whole page.
