Abbreviations used within documents can be marked with the <abbr></abbr> tag to make your documents available to a wider web audience, especially text-to-speech conversion browsers. Use the title attribute to give the full version. e.g.. <abbr title="for example">e.g.</abbr> See also Acronym.
See also Abbreviation. Use <acronym></acronym> to
enclose all acronyms used within the text of your documents to make your pages accessible to the widest audience. Add a title attribute and the browser will explain the acronym for you when the mouse hovers over the acronym. Examples: DHTML, CSS, HTML, WWW. Netscape4 does not support this useful feature, Netscape6 does.
attribute: See also Forms. The action="" attribute in the <form> tag tells the browser where it can find the program that will process the information gathered by the form. Absolute or relative URL's can be used but make sure you have 'permission' or access to the program before using the form. Generally, the action attribute points to a CGI script resident on the same system as your site. Ask your ISP for details of scripts like formmail which translate the data from the form into an email that is sent to your usual email address. These scripts often require you to add certain fields (that can be hidden from the form) to tell the program who you are and where you can be reached.
Generally displays the ownership or address of the page author in italic type with a line break above and below. Like <abbr>, this can also increase the accessibility of your pages to those with text to speech conversion browsers.
Alternative Text - a required (HTML4) attribute of the <img> tag. alt="" should contain text that briefly describes the image or the page to which the image is linked if the <img> tag is contained within the <a></a> tag.
Use to anchor or base a link. You can link to an internal page on your site or an external page anywhere on the net. Links to external pages are absolute references - the full path must be specified. Links to internal pages can be absolute or relative: files in the same directory on your site can be linked using just the filename (with extension; htm or html) files in sub-directories linked using the name of the directory (dir/file.htm) and files in directories above the current document use two dots to specify the immediate parent: (../file.htm) Link to pages using <a href="URL">Link_Text</a> Always use </a> to close an anchor tag - or the whole document may become part of your link and some sections will not display at all.

var value = my_array.pop();
Standard alphanumeric characters (a to z and 0 to 9). Usually taken to include some special characters like punctuation marks, brackets, simple arithmetic symbols. ASCII files are sometimes known as "text" files.
Additional information added to a tag to modify the effect of the tag on the document. Some tags are optional, some are required. e.g. <a href=""> the href="" entry is an attribute, it tells the <a> tag that the anchor is to serve as a link to another source, and the contents (or value) of the attribute give the location of the linked data. The <img> tag has a required attribute of src="" which tells the browser where to find the image to insert into the document in place of the <img> tag.
