URL encoding

URL encoding converts characters into a format that can be safely transmitted over the Internet.

Cascading Style Sheets

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used to describe the presentation semantics (the look and formatting) of a document written in a markup language. Its most common application is to style web pages written in HTML and XHTML.






Character Encoding


Character encoding is the process of mapping the various letters and symbols of a certain language into the corresponding letters and symbols of another language.  This is done with character sets and code pages.


While at the MathWorks, one of my assignments was to take MS Word documents that were written in a non-English languages:

      • Spanish
      • Portugese
      • German
      • Chinese
      • German

— encode them correctly into the appropriate web pages


— and verify the encoding resolved correctly in the appropriate brower(s).
