Web pages are what make up the World Wide Web. These documents are written in HTML (hypertext language) and are translated by your Web . Web pages can either be static or dynamic. Static pages show the same content each time they are viewed. Dynamic pages have content that can change each time they are accessed.

These pages are typically written in scripting languages such as , , ASP, or JSP. The scripts in the pages run on the that return things like the date and time, and database information. All the information is returned as HTML code, so when the page gets to your browser, all the browser has to do is translate the HTML.

Please note that a Web page is not the same thing as a Web site. A Web site is a collection of pages. A Web page is an individual HTML document. This is a good distinction to know, as most techies have little tolerance for people who mix up the two terms.
