Users can browse the World Wide Web from within Emacs by using Emacs/W3.
All of the widely used (and even some not very widely used) @sc{url}
schemes are supported, and it is very easy to add new methods as the
need arises.

Emacs/W3 provides some core functionality that can be readily re-used
from any program in Emacs.  Users and other package writers are
encouraged to @i{Web-enable} their applications and daily work routines
with the library.

Emacs/W3 is completely customizable, both from Emacs-Lisp and from
stylesheets @xref{Stylesheets}  If there is any aspect of Emacs/W3 that
cannot be modified to your satisfaction, please send mail to the
@t{w3-beta@@indiana.edu} mailing list with any suggestions.

If installed correctly, starting Emacs/W3 is quite painless.  Just type
@kbd{M-x w3} in a running Emacs session.  This will retrieve the default
page that has been configured (@pxref{Preferences Panel}) - by default the
documentation for Emacs/W3 at Indiana University.

If the default page is not retrieved correctly at startup, you will have
to do some customization (@pxref{Preferences Panel}).

Once started, you can use the mouse and the menu or use the following
key commands (for more commands and more detail, @pxref{Basic Usage, ,

press the @kbd{SHIFT} and @kbd{TAB} keys at the same time.  If this does
not work (some text terminals cannot distinguish between @kbd{TAB} and
@kbd{SHIFT-TAB}, pressing the @kbd{ALT} and @kbd{TAB} keys should also
work.

@chapter Basic Usage
@cindex Basic Usage
@kindex space
@kindex backspace
@kindex return
@kindex tab
@kindex M-tab
Emacs/W3 is similar to the Info package all Emacs users hold near and
dear to their hearts (@xref{Top,,Info,info, The Info Manual}, for a
description of Info).  Basically, @kbd{space} and @kbd{backspace}
control scrolling, and @kbd{return} or the middle mouse button follows a
hypertext link.  The @kbd{tab} and @kbd{Meta-tab} keys maneuver around the
various links on the page.

@b{NOTE:} Starting with Emacs/W3 3.0, form entry areas in a page can be
typed directly into.  This is one of the main differences in navigation
from version 2.0.  If you are used to using the @kbd{f} and @kbd{b} keys
to navigate around a buffer, I suggest training yourself to always use
@kbd{tab} and @kbd{M-tab} - it will save time and frustration on pages
with lots of form fields.

By default, hypertext links are surrounded by '[[' and ']]' on
non-graphic terminals (VT100, DOS window, etc.).  On a graphics
terminal, the links are in shown in different colors.
@xref{Stylesheets} for information on how to change this.

There are approximately 50 keys bound to special Emacs/W3 functions.
The basic rule of thumb regarding keybindings in Emacs/W3 is that a
lowercase key takes an action on the @b{current document}, and an
uppercase key takes an action on the document pointed to by the
hypertext link @b{under the cursor}.

There are several areas that the keybindings fall into: movement,
information, action, and miscellaneous.

@menu
* Movement::                    Moving around in the buffer.
* Information::                 Getting information about a document.
* Action::                      Following links, printing, etc.
* Miscellaneous::               Everything else.

@end table

@node Information, Action, Movement, Basic Usage
@section Information

These functions relate information about one or more links on the
current document.

@table @kbd
@kindex v
@findex url-view-url
@item v
This shows the @sc{url} of the current document in the minibuffer.
@kindex V
@findex w3-view-this-url
@item V
This shows the @sc{url} of the hypertext link under point in the
minibuffer.
@kindex i
@findex w3-document-information
@item i
Shows miscellaneous information about the currently displayed document.
This includes the @sc{url}, the last modified date, @sc{mime} headers,
the @sc{http} response code, and any relationships to other documents.
Any security information is also displayed.
@kindex I
@findex w3-document-information-this-url
@item I
Shows information about the @sc{url} at point.
@kindex s
@findex w3-source-document
@item s
This shows the @sc{html} source of the current document in a separate buffer.
The buffer's name is based on the document's @sc{url}.
@kindex S
@findex w3-source-document-at-point
@item S
Shows the @sc{html} source of the hypertext link under point in a separate
buffer.  The buffer's name is based on the document's @sc{url}.
@kindex k
@findex w3-save-url
@item k
This stores the current document's @sc{url} in the kill ring, and also in the
current window-system's clipboard, if possible.
@kindex K
@findex w3-save-this-url
@item K
Stores the @sc{url} of the document under point in the kill ring, and also in
the current window-system's clipboard, if possible.
@end table

@node Action, Miscellaneous, Information, Basic Usage
@section Action

First, here are the keys and functions that bring up a new hypertext
page, usually creating a new buffer.
@table @kbd
@kindex m
@findex w3-complete-link
@item m
Choose a link from the current buffer and follow it.  A completing-read
is done on all the links, so @kbd{space} and @kbd{TAB} can be used for
completion.
@kindex return
@findex w3-follow-link
@item return 
Pressing return when over a hyperlink attempts to follow the link
under the cursor.  With a prefix argument (@kbd{C-u}), this forces the
file to be saved to disk instead of being passed off to other viewers
or being parsed as @sc{html}.

Pressing return when over a form input field can cause auto-submission
of the form.  This is for Mosaic and Netscape compatibility.  If there
is only one item in the form other than submit or reset buttons, then

minibuffer for the data to insert into the input field.  Type checking
is done, and the data is only entered into the form when data of the
correct type is entered (ie: cannot enter 44 for 'date' field, etc).

@kindex Middle Mouse Button
@findex w3-follow-mouse
@item Middle Mouse Button
Attempt to follow a hypertext link under the mouse cursor.  Clicking on
a form input field will prompt in the minibuffer for the data to insert
into the input field.  Type checking is done, and the data is only
entered into the form when data of the correct type is entered (ie:
cannot enter 44 for 'date' field, etc).

@kindex Control Middle Mouse Button
@kindex Meta return
@findex w3-follow-inlined-image
@item Control Middle Mouse Button, Meta return
Tries to retrieve the inlined image that is under point.  It ignores any
form entry areas or hyperlinks, and blindly follows any inlined image.
Useful for seeing images that are meant to be used as hyperlinks when
not on a terminal capable of displaying graphics.

@kindex p
@findex w3-print-this-url
@item p
Prints out the current buffer in a variety of formats, including
PostScript, @sc{html} source, or formatted text.
@kindex P
@findex w3-print-url-under-point
@item P
Prints out the @sc{url} under point in a variety of formats, including
PostScript, @sc{html} source, or formatted text.
@kindex m
@findex w3-complete-link
@item m
Selects a destination from a list of all the hyperlinks in the current
buffer.  Use @kbd{space} and @kbd{tab} to complete on the links.

@kindex r
@kindex g
@findex w3-reload-document
@item r, g
Reloads the current document.  The position within the buffer remains
the same (unless the document has changed since it was last retrieved,
in which case it should be relatively close).  This causes an
unconditional reload from the remote server - the locally cached copy is
not consulted.
@kindex C-o
@findex w3-fetch
@item C-o
Prompts for a @sc{url} in the minibuffer, and attempts to fetch
it.  If there are any errors, or Emacs/W3 cannot understand the type of link
requested, the errors are displayed in a hypertext buffer.
@kindex o
@findex w3-open-local
@vindex url-use-hypertext-dired
@item o
Opens a local file, interactively.  This prompts for a local file name
to open.  The file must exist, and may be a directory.  If the requested
file is a directory and @code{url-use-hypertext-dired} is @code{nil},
then a dired-mode buffer is displayed.  If non@code{nil}, then Emacs/W3
automatically generates a hypertext listing of the directory.  The
hypertext mode is the default, so that all the keys and functions remain
the same.

@kindex M-s
@findex w3-save-as
@item M-s
Save a document to the local disk as HTML Source, Formatted Text, LaTeX
Source, or Binary.

@kindex Hv
@findex w3-show-history-list
@vindex w3-keep-history
@item Hv
If @code{url-keep-history} is non-@code{nil}, then Emacs/W3 keeps track
of all the @sc{url}s visited in an Emacs session.  This function takes all
the links that are in that internal list, and formats them as hypertext
links in a list.
@end table

@cindex Buffer movement
And here are the commands to move around between Emacs/W3 buffers:

@table @kbd
@kindex l
@findex w3-goto-last-buffer
@item l
Goes to the last WWW buffer seen.
@kindex q
@findex w3-quit
@item q
Quits WWW mode.  This kills the current buffer and goes to the most
recently visited buffer.
@kindex Q
@findex w3-leave-buffer
@item u
This is similar to w3-quit, but the buffer is not killed, it is moved to
the bottom of the buffer list (so it is the least likely to show up as
the default with switch-to-buffer).  This is different from
@code{w3-goto-last-buffer} in that it does not return to the last WWW
page visited - it is the same as using @code{switch-to-buffer} - the
buffer left in the window is fairly random. 
@kindex HB
@kindex B
@findex w3-backward-in-history
@item HB, B
Takes one step back along the path in the current history.  Has no
effect if at the beginning of the session history.
@kindex HF
@kindex F
@findex w3-forward-in-history
@item HF, F
Takes one step forward along the path in the current history.  Has no
effect if at the end of the session history.
@end table

@node Miscellaneous,  , Action, Basic Usage
@section Miscellaneous

@table @kbd
@kindex M-m
@findex w3-mail-current-document
@item M-m
Mails the current document to someone.  Choose from several different
formats to mail: formatted text, @sc{html} source, PostScript, or LaTeX source.
When the @sc{html} source is mailed, then an appropriate <base> tag is inserted
at the beginning of the document so that relative links may be followed
correctly by whoever receives the mail.
@kindex M-M
@findex w3-mail-document-under-point
@item M-M
Mails the document pointed to by the hypertext link under point to someone.
Choose from several different formats to mail: formatted text, @sc{html} source,
PostScript, or LaTeX source.  When the @sc{html} source is mailed, then an
appropriate <base> tag is inserted at the beginning of the document so that
relative links may be followed correctly by whoever receives the
mail.
@kindex p
@findex w3-print-this-url
@item p
Prints the current document.  Choose from several different formats to
print: formatted text, @sc{html} source, PostScript (with ps-print), or by using
LaTeX and dvips).

@findex lpr-buffer
@vindex lpr-command
@vindex lpr-switches
When the formatted text is printed, the normal @code{lpr-buffer} function
is called, and the variables @code{lpr-command} and @code{lpr-switches}
control how the document is printed.

When the @sc{html} source is printed, then an appropriate <base> tag is
inserted at the beginning of the document.
@vindex w3-print-commnad
@vindex w3-latex-docstyle
When postscript is printed, then the @sc{html} source of the document is
converted into LaTeX source.  There are several variables controlling
what the final LaTeX document looks like.

:: WORK :: Document the new LaTeX backend

@table @code
@item w3-latex-use-latex2e
@vindex w3-latex-use-latex2e
If non-@code{nil}, configures the LaTeX engine to use the LaTeX2e
syntax.  A @code{nil} value indicates that LaTeX 2.0.9 compabibility
will be used instead.
@item w3-latex-docstyle
@vindex w3-latex-docstyle
The document style to use when printing or mailing converted @sc{html} files
in LaTeX.  Good defaults are: @{article@}, [psfig,twocolumn]@{article@},
etc.
@item w3-latex-packages
@vindex w3-latex-packages
List of LaTeX packages to include.  Currently this is only used if 
@code{w3-latex-use-latex2e} is non-@code{nil}.
@item w3-latex-use-maketitle
@vindex w3-latex-use-maketitle
If non-@code{nil}, the LaTeX engine will use real LaTeX title pages for
document titles.
@item w3-latex-print-links
@vindex w3-latex-print-links
If non-@code{nil}, prints the @sc{url}s of hypertext links as endnotes at the
end of the document.  If set to @code{footnote}, prints the @sc{url}'s as
footnotes on each page.
@end table

@kindex P
@findex w3-print-url-under-point
@item P
Prints the document pointed to by the hypertext link under point.
Please see the previous item for more information.
@kindex M-x w3-insert-formatted-url
@findex w3-insert-formatted-url
@item M-x w3-insert-formatted-url
Insert a fully formatted @sc{html} link into another buffer.  This gets the
name and @sc{url} of either the current buffer, or, with a prefix arg, of the
link under point, and construct the appropriate <a...>...</a> markup and
insert it into the desired buffer.
@kindex M-tab
@findex w3-insert-this-url
@item M-tab
Inserts the @sc{url} of the current document into another buffer.  Buffer is
prompted for in the minibuffer.  With prefix arg, uses the @sc{url} of the
link under point.
@kindex U
@findex w3-use-links
@item U
Selects one of the <LINK> tags from this document and fetch it.  Links
are attributes of a specific document, and can tell such things as who
made the document, where a table of contents is located, etc.

Link tags specify relationships between documents in two ways.  Normal
(forward) relationships (where the link has a REL="xxx" attribute), and
reverse relationships (where the link has a REV="xxx" attribute).  This
first asks what type of link to follow (Normal or Reverse), then does
a @code{completing-read} on only the links that have that type of
relationship.

@chapter Compatibility with other Browsers
Due to the popularity of several other browsers, Emacs/W3 offers an easy
transition to its much better way of life.  This ranges from being able
to share the same preferences files and disk cache to actually emulating
the keybindings used in other browsers.

@menu
* Emulation::                   Emacs/W3 can emulate the keybindings and
				other behaviours of other browsers.

				interesting Web pages without having to
				remember the exact path to get there.
* Session History::             Keeping a history of documents visited
				in one Emacs sessions allows the use of
				'forward' and 'back' buttons easily.
* Global History::              Keeping a history of all the places ever

@section Hotlist Handling

:: WORK :: Document that it supports different types of hotlist formats@*
:: WORK :: Make sure everything hotlist related can be accessed via 'h'@*
In order to avoid having to traverse many documents to get to the same
document over and over, Emacs/W3 supports a ``hotlist'' like Mosaic.  This is
a file that contains @sc{url}s and aliases.  Hotlists allow quick access to any
document in the Web, providing it has been visited and added to the hotlist.
The variable @code{w3-hotlist-file} determines where this information
is saved.  The structure of the file is compatible with Mosaic's
hotlist file, so this defaults to @file{~/.mosaic-hotlist-default}.

Hotlist commands are:
@table @kbd
@kindex hi
@findex w3-hotlist-add-document
@vindex w3-hotlist-file
@item a
Adds the current document to the hotlist, with the buffer name as its
identifier.  Modifies the file specified by @code{w3-hotlist-file}.  If
this is given a prefix-argument (via @kbd{C-u}), the title is prompted
for instead of automatically defaulting to the document title.

@findex w3-hotlist-refresh
@vindex w3-hotlist-file
@kindex hR
@item hR
This rereads the default hostlist file specified by
@code{w3-hotlist-file}.
@findex w3-hotlist-delete
@vindex w3-hotlist-file
@kindex hd
@item d
Prompts for the alias of the entry to kill.  Pressing the spacebar or
tab will list out partial completions.  The internal representation of
the hotlist and the file specified by @code{w3-hotlist-file} are
updated. 
@item hr
@kindex hr
@findex w3-hotlist-rename-entry
@vindex w3-hotlist-file
Some hotlist item names can be very unwieldy (`Mosaic for X level 2 fill
out form support'), or uninformative (`Index of /').  Prompts for the
item to rename in the minibuffer---use the spacebar or tab key for
completion.  After having chosen an item to rename, prompts for a new
title until a unique title is entered.  Modifies the file specified by
@code{w3-hotlist-file}.

@item hu
@kindex hu
@findex w3-use-hotlist
Prompts for the alias to jump to.  Pressing the @key{spacebar} or
@key{tab} key shows partial completions.

@item hv
@kindex hv
@findex w3-show-hotlist
Converts the hotlist into @sc{html} and displays it.
@item ha
@kindex ha
@findex w3-hotlist-apropos
Shows the hotlist entries matching a regular expression.
@item hA
@kindex hA
@findex w3-hotlist-append
Appends another hotlist file to the one currently in memory.

@node Session History, Global History, Hotlist Handling, Compatibility
@section History
@cindex History Lists

Almost all web browsers keep track of the @sc{url}s followed from a page, so
that it can provide @b{forward} and @b{back} buttons to keep a @i{path}
of @sc{url}s that can be traversed easily.

@vindex url-keep-history
If the variable @code{url-keep-history} is @code{t}, then Emacs/W3
keeps a list of all the @sc{url}s visited in a session.

@findex w3-show-history
To view a listing of the history for this session of Emacs/W3, use
@code{M-x w3-show-history} from any buffer, and Emacs/W3 generates an
@sc{html} document showing every @sc{url} visited since Emacs started (or
cleared the history list), and then format it.  Any of the links can
be chosen and followed to the original document.  To clear the history
list, choose 'Clear History' from the 'Options' menu.

@findex w3-forward-in-history
@findex w3-backward-in-history
@findex w3-fetch
Another twist on the history list mechanism is the fact that all
Emacs/W3 buffers remember what @sc{url}, buffer, and buffer position of the
last document, and also keeps track of the next location jumped @b{to}
from that buffer.  This means that the user can go forwards and
backwards very easily along the path taken to reach a particular
document.  To go forward, use the function @code{w3-forward-in-history},
to go backward, use the function @code{w3-backward-in-history}.

@node Global History,  , Session History, Compatibility
@section Global History

:: WORK :: Document that the global history can have diff. formats@*
Most web browsers also support the idea of a ``history'' of @sc{url}s the
user has visited, and it displays them in a different style than normal
@sc{url}s.

@vindex url-keep-history
@vindex url-global-history-file
If the variable @code{url-keep-history} is @code{t}, then Emacs/W3
keeps a list of all the @sc{url}s visited in a session.  The file is
automatically written to disk when exiting emacs.  The list is added to
those already in the file specified by @code{url-global-history-file},
which defaults to @file{~/.mosaic-global-history}.

If any @sc{url} in the list is found in the file, it is not saved, but new
ones are added at the end of the file.

The function that saves the global history list is smart enough to
notice what style of history list is being used (Netscape, Emacs/W3, or
XMosaic), and writes out the new additions appropriately.

@cindex Completion of URLs
@cindex Usefulness of global history
One of the nice things about keeping a global history files is that Emacs/W3
can use it as a completion table.  When doing @kbd{M-x w3-fetch}, pressing
the @kbd{tab} or @kbd{space} key will show all completions for a
partial @sc{url}.  This is very useful, especially for very long @sc{url}s that
are not in a hotlist, or for seeing all the pages from a particular web
site before choosing which to retrieve.

@node Stylesheets, Supported URLs, Compatibility, Top
@chapter Stylesheets
The way in which Emacs/W3 formats a document is very customizable.  All
formatting is now controlled by a default stylesheet set by the user
with the @code{w3-default-stylesheet} variable.  Emacs/W3 currently
supports the @sc{W3C} recommendation for Cascading Style Sheets, Level 1
(commonly known as @sc{CSS1}) with a few experimental items from other
W3C proposals.  Wherever Emacs/W3 diverges from the specification, it
will be clearly documented, and will be changed once a full standard is
available.

Support for @sc{DSSSL} is progressing, but spare time is at an all-time
low.  If anyone would like to help, please contact the author.

The following sections closely parallel the @sc{CSS1} specification so
it should be very easy to look up what Emacs/W3 supports when browsing
through the @sc{CSS1} specification.  Please note that a lot of the text
in the following sections comes directly from the specification as
well.

@item canvas
The part of the UA's drawing surface onto which documents are rendered.
@item child element
A subelement in @sc{sgml} terminology.
@item contextual selector
A selector that matches elements based on their position in the document

selectors. E.g., the contextual selector 'H1.initial B' consists of two
simple selectors, 'H1.initial' and 'B'.
@item @sc{css}
Cascading Style Sheets.
@item declaration
A property (e.g. 'font-size') and a corresponding value (e.g. '12pt').
@item designer
The designer of a style sheet.
@item document
@sc{html} document.
@item element
@sc{html} element.
@item element type
A generic identifier in @sc{sgml} terminology.
@item fictional tag sequence
A tool for describing the behavior of pseudo-classes and pseudo-elements.
@item font size
The size for which a font is designed. Typically, the size of a font is
approximately equal to the distance from the bottom of the lowest letter
with a descender to the top of the tallest letter with an ascender and
(optionally) with a diacritical mark.
@item @sc{html} extension
Markup introduced by UA vendors, most often to support certain visual
effects. The @sc{font}, @sc{center} and @sc{blink} elements are examples
of HTML extensions, as is the @sc{bgcolor} attribute. One of the goals
of @sc{css} is to provide an alternative to @sc{html} extensions.
@item inline element
An element which does not have a line break before and after
(e.g. '@sc{strong}' in @sc{html})
@item intrinsic dimensions
The width and height as defined by the element itself, not imposed by
the surroundings. In this specification it is assumed that all replaced
elements -- and only replaced elements -- come with intrinsic
dimensions.
@item parent element
The containing element in @sc{sgml} terminology.
@item pseudo-element
Pseudo-elements are used in @sc{css} selectors to address typographical
items (e.g. the first line of an element) rather than structural
elements.
@item pseudo-class
Pseudo-classes are used in @sc{css} selectors to allow information
external to the @sc{html} source (e.g. the fact that an anchor has been
visited or not) to classify elements.
@item property
A stylistic parameter that can be influenced through @sc{css}.
@item reader
The person for whom the document is rendered.
@item replaced element
An element that the @sc{css} formatter only knows the intrinsic
dimensions of. In @sc{html}, @sc{img}, @sc{input}, @sc{textarea},
@sc{select} and @sc{object} elements can be examples of replaced
elements. E.g., the content of the @sc{img} element is often replaced by
the image that the @sc{src} attribute points to.  @sc{css1} does not
define how the intrinsic dimensions are found.
@item rule
A declaration (e.g. 'font-family: helvetica') and its selector
(e.g. @sc{'H1'}).
@item selector
A string that identifies what elements the corresponding rule applies
to. A selector can either be a simple selector (e.g. 'H1') or a
contextual selector (e.g. @sc{'h1 b'}) which consists of several simple
selectors.
@item @sc{sgml}
Standard Generalized Markup Language, of which @sc{html} is an
application.
@item simple selector
A selector that matches elements based on the element type and/or
attributes, and not the element's position in the document
structure. E.g., 'H1.initial' is a simple selector.

A collection of rules.
@item @sc{ua}
User Agent, often a web browser or web client.
@item user
Synonymous with reader.
@item weight
The priority of a rule.

@node Basic Concepts, Pseudo-Classes/Elements, Terminology, Stylesheets
@section Basic Concepts

Designing simple style sheets is easy. One needs only to know a little
HTML and some basic desktop publishing terminology. E.g., to set the
text color of 'H1' elements to blue, one can say:

@example 
  H1 @{ color: blue @}
@end example

The example above is a simple CSS rule. A rule consists of two main
parts: selector ('H1') and declaration ('color: blue'). The declaration
has two parts: property ('color') and value ('blue'). While the example
above tries to influence only one of the properties needed for rendering
an HTML document, it qualifies as a style sheet on its own. Combined
with other style sheets (one fundamental feature of CSS is that style
sheets are combined) it will determine the final presentation of the
document.

The selector is the link between the HTML document and the style sheet, and
all HTML element types are possible selectors.

@node Pseudo-Classes/Elements, The Cascade, Basic Concepts, Stylesheets
@section Pseudo-Classes/Elements

In @sc{css1}, style is normally attached to an element based on its
position in the document structure. This simple model is sufficient for
a wide variety of styles, but doesn't cover some common effects. The
concept of pseudo-classes and pseudo-elements extend addressing in
@sc{css1} to allow external information to influence the formatting
process.

Pseudo-classes and pseudo-elements can be used in @sc{css} selectors,
but do not exist in the @sc{html} source. Rather, they are "inserted" by
the @sc{ua} under certain conditions to be used for addressing in style
sheets. They are referred to as "classes" and "elements" since this is a
convenient way of describing their behavior. More specifically, their
behavior is defined by a fictional tag sequence.

Pseudo-elements are used to address sub-parts of elements, while
pseudo-classes allow style sheets to differentiate between different
element types.

The only support pseudo-classes in Emacs/W3 are on the anchor tag
(<a>...</a>).

User agents commonly display newly visited anchors differently from
older ones. In @sc{css1}, this is handled through pseudo-classes on the
'A' element:

@example
  A:link @{ color: red @}       /* unvisited link */
  A:visited @{ color: blue @}   /* visited links */
  A:active @{ color: lime @}    /* active links */
@end example

All 'A' elements with an 'HREF' attribute will be put into one and only
one of these groups (i.e. target anchors are not affected). UAs may
choose to move an element from 'visited' to 'link' after a certain
time. An 'active' link is one that is currently being selected (e.g. by
a mouse button press) by the reader.

The formatting of an anchor pseudo-class is as if the class had been
inserted manually. A @sc{ua} is not required to reformat a currently
displayed document due to anchor pseudo-class transitions. E.g., a style
sheet can legally specify that the 'font-size' of an 'active' link
should be larger that a 'visited' link, but the UA is not required to
dynamically reformat the document when the reader selects the 'visited'
link.

Pseudo-class selectors do not match normal classes, and vice versa. The
style rule in the example below will therefore not have any influence:

@example
  A:link @{ color: red @}

  <A CLASS=link NAME=target5> ... </A>
@end example

In @sc{css1}, anchor pseudo-classes have no effect on elements other
than 'A'. Therefore, the element type can be omitted from the selector:

@example
  A:link @{ color: red @}
  :link @{ color: red @}
@end example

The two selectors above will select the same elements in CSS1.

Pseudo-class names are case-insensitive.

Pseudo-classes can be used in contextual selectors:

@example
  A:link IMG @{ border: solid blue @}
@end example

Also, pseudo-classes can be combined with normal classes:

@example
  A.external:visited @{ color: blue @}

  <A CLASS=external HREF="http://out.side/">external link</A>
@end example

If the link in the above example has been visited, it will be rendered
in blue. Note that normal class names precede pseudo-classes in the
selector.

@node The Cascade, Properties, Pseudo-Classes/Elements, Stylesheets
@section The Cascade

In @sc{css}, more than one style sheet can influence the presentation
simultaneously. There are two main reasons for this feature: modularity
and author/reader balance.

@table @i
@item modularity
A style sheet designer can combine several (partial) style sheets to
reduce redundancy:

@example
  @@import url(http://www.style.org/pastoral);
  @@import url(http://www.style.org/marine);

  H1 @{ color: red @}     /* override imported sheets */
@end example
@item author/reader balance
Both readers and authors can influence the presentation through style
sheets. To do so, they use the same style sheet language thus reflecting
a fundamental feature of the web: everyone can become a publisher. The
@sc{ua} is free to choose the mechanism for referencing personal style
sheets.
@end table

Sometimes conflicts will arise between the style sheets that influence
the presentation. Conflict resolution is based on each style rule having
a weight. By default, the weights of the reader's rules are less than
the weights of rules in the author's documents. I.e., if there are
conflicts between the style sheets of an incoming document and the
reader's personal sheets, the author's rules will be used. Both reader
and author rules override the @sc{ua}'s default values.

The imported style sheets also cascade with each other, in the order
they are imported, according to the cascading rules defined below. Any
rules specified in the style sheet itself override rules in imported
style sheets. That is, imported style sheets are lower in the cascading
order than rules in the style sheet itself. Imported style sheets can
themselves import and override other style sheets, recursively.

In @sc{css1}, all '@@import' statements must occur at the start of a
style sheet, before any declarations. This makes it easy to see that
rules in the style sheet itself override rules in the imported style
sheets.

NOTE: The use of !important in @sc{css} stylesheets is unsupported at
this time.

Conflicting rules are intrinsic to the CSS mechanism. To find the value
for an element/property combination, the following algorithm must be
followed:

@enumerate
@item
Find all declarations that apply to the element/property in
question. Declarations apply if the selector matches the element in
question. If no declarations apply, the inherited value is used. If
there is no inherited value (this is the case for the 'HTML' element and
for properties that do not inherit), the initial value is used.
@item 
Sort the declarations by explicit weight: declarations marked
'!important' carry more weight than unmarked (normal) declarations.
@item
Sort by origin: the author's style sheets override the reader's style
sheet which override the UA's default values. An imported style sheet
has the same origin as the style sheet from which it is imported.
@item
Sort by specificity of selector: more specific selectors will override
more general ones. To find the specificity, count the number of ID
attributes in the selector (a), the number of CLASS attributes in the
selector (b), and the number of tag names in the selector
(c). Concatenating the three numbers (in a number system with a large
base) gives the specificity. Some examples:
@example
  LI            @{...@}  /* a=0 b=0 c=1 -> specificity =   1 */
  UL LI         @{...@}  /* a=0 b=0 c=2 -> specificity =   2 */
  UL OL LI      @{...@}  /* a=0 b=0 c=3 -> specificity =   3 */
  LI.red        @{...@}  /* a=0 b=1 c=1 -> specificity =  11 */
  UL OL LI.red  @{...@}  /* a=0 b=1 c=3 -> specificity =  13 */ 
  #x34y         @{...@}  /* a=1 b=0 c=0 -> specificity = 100 */ 
@end example
Pseudo-elements and pseudo-classes are counted as normal elements and
classes, respectively.
@item
Sort by order specified: if two rules have the same weight, the latter
specified wins. Rules in imported style sheets are considered to be
before any rules in the style sheet itself.
@end enumerate

The search for the property value can be terminated whenever one rule
has a higher weight than the other rules that apply to the same
element/property combination.

This strategy gives author's style sheets considerably higher weight
than those of the reader. It is therefore important that the reader has
the ability to turn off the influence of a certain style sheet,
e.g. through a pull-down menu.

A declaration in the 'STYLE' attribute of an element has the same weight
as a declaration with an ID-based selector that is specified at the end
of the style sheet:

@example
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
  #x97z @{ color: blue @}
</STYLE>

<P ID=x97z STYLE="color: red">
@end example

In the above example, the color of the 'P' element would be
red. Although the specificity is the same for both declarations, the
declaration in the 'STYLE' attribute will override the one in the
'STYLE' element because of cascading rule number 5.

The @sc{ua} may choose to honor other stylistic @sc{html} attributes,
for example 'ALIGN'. If so, these attributes are translated to the
corresponding @sc{css} rules with specificity equal to 1. The rules are
assumed to be at the start of the author style sheet and may be
overridden by subsequent style sheet rules. In a transition phase, this
policy will make it easier for stylistic attributes to coexist with
style sheets.

@node Properties, Units, The Cascade, Stylesheets
@section Properties

In the text below, the allowed values for each property are listed
with a syntax like the following:

@example
      Value: N | NW | NE
      Value: [ <length> | thick | thin ]@{1,4@}
      Value: <uri>? <color> [ / <color> ]?
      Value: <uri> || <color>
@end example

The words between < and > give a type of value. The most common types
are <length>, <percentage>, <url>, <number>and <color> these are
described in the section on [[units]]. The more specialized types
(e.g. <font-family>and <border-style>) are described under the property
where they appear.

Other words are keywords that must appear literally, without quotes. The
slash (/) and the comma (,) must also appear literally.

Several things juxtaposed mean that all of them must occur, in the given
order. A bar (|) separates alternatives: one of them must occur. A
double bar (A || B) means that either A or B or both must occur, in any
order. Brackets ([]) are for grouping. Juxtaposition is stronger than
the double bar, and the double bar is stronger than the bar. Thus "a b |
c || d e" is equivalent to "[ a b ] | [ c || [ d e ]]".

Every type, keyword, or bracketed group may be followed by one of the
following modifiers:

@itemize @bullet
@item
An asterisk (*) indicates that the preceding type, word or group is
repeated zero or more times.
@item
A plus (+) indicates that the preceding type, word or group is repeated
one or more times.
@item
A question mark (?) indicates that the preceding type, word or group is
optional.
@item
A pair of numbers in curly braces (@{A,B@}) indicates that the preceding
type, word or group is repeated at least A and at most B times.

Setting font properties will be among the most common uses of style
sheets.  Unfortunately, there exists no well-defined and universally
accepted taxonomy for classifying fonts, and terms that apply to one
font family may not be appropriate for others. E.g. 'italic' is commonly
used to label slanted text, but slanted text may also be labeled as
being @b{Oblique}, @b{Slanted}, @b{Incline}, @b{Cursive} or
@b{Kursiv}. Therefore it is not a simple problem to map typical font
selection properties to a specific font.

The properties defined by CSS1 are described in the following sections.

@end multitable
The value is a prioritized list of font family names and/or generic
family names. Unlike most other CSS1 properties, values are separated
by a comma to indicate that they are alternatives:

@example
  BODY @{ font-family: gill, helvetica, sans-serif @}
@end example

There are two types of list values:

@table @b
@item <family-name>
The name of a font family of choice. In the last example, "gill" and
"helvetica" are font families.
@item <generic-family>
In the example above, the last value is a generic family name. The
following generic families are defined:
@itemize @bullet
@item
'serif' (e.g. Times)
@item
'sans-serif' (e.g. Helvetica)
@item
'cursive' (e.g. Zapf-Chancery)
@item
'fantasy' (e.g. Western)
@item
'monospace' (e.g. Courier)
@end itemize
@end table

Style sheet designers are encouraged to offer a generic font family as a
last alternative.

Font names containing whitespace should be quoted:

@example
  BODY @{ font-family: "new century schoolbook", serif @}
  
  <BODY STYLE="font-family: 'My own font', fantasy">
@end example

If quoting is omitted, any whitespace characters before and after the
font name are ignored and any sequence of whitespace characters inside
the font name is converted to a single space.

The 'font-style' property selects between normal (sometimes referred to
as "roman" or "upright"), italic and oblique faces within a font family.

A value of 'normal' selects a font that is classified as 'normal' in the
UA's font database, while 'oblique' selects a font that is labeled
'oblique'. A value of 'italic' selects a font that is labeled 'italic',
or, if that is not available, one labeled 'oblique'.

The font that is labeled 'oblique' in the UA's font database may
actually have been generated by electronically slanting a normal font.

Fonts with Oblique, Slanted or Incline in their names will typically be
labeled 'oblique' in the UA's font database. Fonts with Italic, Cursive
or Kursiv in their names will typically be labeled 'italic'.

@example

Another type of variation within a font family is the small-caps. In a
small-caps font the lower case letters look similar to the uppercase
ones, but in a smaller size and with slightly different proportions. The
'font-variant' property selects that font.

A value of 'normal' selects a font that is not a small-caps font,
'small-caps' selects a small-caps font. It is acceptable (but not
required) in CSS1 if the small-caps font is a created by taking a normal
font and replacing the lower case letters by scaled uppercase
characters. As a last resort, uppercase letters will be used as
replacement for a small-caps font.

The following example results in an 'H3' element in small-caps, with
emphasized words in oblique small-caps:

@example
  H3 @{ font-variant: small-caps @}
  EM @{ font-style: oblique @}
@end example

There may be other variants in the font family as well, such as fonts
with old-style numerals, small-caps numerals, condensed or expanded
letters, etc. CSS1 has no properties that select those.

@item Unsupported Values: @tab bolder | lighter
@item Initial: @tab normal
@item Applies to: @tab all elements
@item Inherited: @tab yes
@item Percentage values: @tab N/A
@end multitable

The 'font-weight' property selects the weight of the font. The values
'100' to '900' form an ordered sequence, where each number indicates a
weight that is at least as dark as its predecessor. The keyword 'normal'
is synonymous with '400', and 'bold' is synonymous with '700'. Keywords
other than 'normal' and 'bold' have been shown to be often confused with
font names and a numerical scale was therefore chosen for the 9-value
list.

@example
  P @{ font-weight: normal @}   /* 400 */
  H1 @{ font-weight: 700 @}     /* bold */
@end example

The 'bolder' and 'lighter' values select font weights that are relative
to the weight inherited from the parent:

@example
  STRONG @{ font-weight: bolder @}
@end example

There is no guarantee that there will be a darker face for each of the
'font-weight' values; for example, some fonts may have only a normal and
a bold face, others may have eight different face weights. There is no
guarantee on how a UA will map font faces within a family to weight
values. The only guarantee is that a face of a given value will be no
less dark than the faces of lighter values.

@item Applies to: @tab all elements
@item Inherited: @tab yes
@item Percentage values: @tab relative to parent element's font size
@end multitable

@table @b
@item <absolute-size>
An <absolute-size> keyword is an index to a table of font sizes computed
and kept by the UA. Possible values are:
@itemize @bullet
@item
xx-small
@item
x-small
@item
small
@item
medium
@item
large
@item
x-large
@item
xx-large
@end itemize

On a computer screen a scaling factor of 1.5 is suggested between
adjacent indexes; if the 'medium' font is 10pt, the 'large' font could
be 15pt. Different media may need different scaling factors. Also, the
UA should take the quality and availability of fonts into account when
computing the table. The table may be different from one font family to
another.
@item <relative-size>
A <relative-size> keyword is interpreted relative to the table of font
sizes and the font size of the parent element. Possible values are
@b{larger} or @b{smaller}. For example, if the parent element has a font
size of 'medium', a value of 'larger' will make the font size of the
current element be 'large'. If the parent element's size is not close to
a table entry, the UA is free to interpolate between table entries or
round off to the closest one. The UA may have to extrapolate table
values if the numerical value goes beyond the keywords.
@end table

Length and percentage values should not take the font size table into
account when calculating the font size of the element.

Negative values are not allowed.

On all other properties, 'em' and 'ex' length values refer to the font
size of the current element. On the 'font-size' property, these length
units refer to the font size of the parent element.

Note that an application may reinterpret an explicit size, depending on
the context. E.g., inside a VR scene a font may get a different size
because of perspective distortion.

Examples:

@example
  P @{ font-size: 12pt; @}
  BLOCKQUOTE @{ font-size: larger @}
  EM @{ font-size: 150% @}
  EM @{ font-size: 1.5em @}
@end example

If the suggested scaling factor of 1.5 is used, the last three
declarations are identical.

@item Initial: @tab not defined for shorthand properties
@item Applies to: @tab all elements
@item Inherited: @tab yes
@item Percentage values: @tab allowed on <font-size> and <line-height>
@end multitable
The 'font' property is a shorthand property for setting 'font-style'
'font-variant' 'font-weight' 'font-size', 'line-height' and
'font-family' at the same place in the style sheet. The syntax of this
property is based on a traditional typographical shorthand notation to
set multiple properties related to fonts.

For a definition of allowed and initial values, see the previously
defined properties. Properties for which no values are given are set to
their initial value.

@example
  P @{ font: 12pt/14pt sans-serif @}
  P @{ font: 80% sans-serif @}
  P @{ font: x-large/110% "new century schoolbook", serif @}
  P @{ font: bold italic large Palatino, serif @}
  P @{ font: normal small-caps 120%/120% fantasy @}
@end example

In the second rule, the font size percentage value ('80%') refers to the
font size of the parent element. In the third rule, the line height
percentage refers to the font size of the element itself.

In the first three rules above, the 'font-style', 'font-variant' and
'font-weight' are not explicitly mentioned, which means they are all
three set to their initial value ('normal'). The fourth rule sets the
'font-weight' to 'bold', the 'font-style' to 'italic' and implicitly
sets 'font-variant' to 'normal'.

The fifth rule sets the 'font-variant' ('small-caps'), the 'font-size'
(120% of the parent's font), the 'line-height' (120% times the font
size) and the 'font-family' ('fantasy'). It follows that the keyword
'normal' applies to the two remaining properties: 'font-style' and
'font-weight'.

@node Colors and Backgrounds, Text Properties, Font Properties, Properties
@subsection Colors and Backgrounds

These properties describe the color (often called foreground color) and
background of an element (i.e. the surface onto which the content is
rendered). One can set a background color and/or a background image. The
position of the image, if/how it is repeated, and whether it is fixed or
scrolled relative to the canvas can also be set.

The 'color' property inherits normally. The background properties do not
inherit, but the parent element's background will shine through by
default because of the initial 'transparent' value on
'background-color'.

NOTE: Currently, Emacs/W3 can only show background images under XEmacs.
Emacs 19 doesn't have the support in its display code yet.

The 'background' property is a shorthand property for setting the

'background-color' has been given and the other individual properties
are set to their initial value. In the second rule, all individual
properties have been specified.

This property describes decorations that are added to the text of an
element. If the element has no text (e.g. the 'IMG' element in HTML) or
is an empty element (e.g. '<EM></EM>'), this property has no effect. A
value of 'blink' causes the text to blink.

The color(s) required for the text decoration should be derived from the
'color' property value.

This property is not inherited, but elements should match their
parent. E.g., if an element is underlined, the line should span the
child elements. The color of the underlining will remain the same even
if descendant elements have different 'color' values.

@example
  A:link, A:visited, A:active @{ text-decoration: underline @}
@end example

The example above would underline the text of all links (i.e., all 'A'
elements with a 'HREF' attribute).

NOTE: The 'line-through' property is only supported under XEmacs
currently.  A patch has been sent to the Emacs maintainers to add
support for this, but it has not made it into the main distribution
yet.

@end multitable

This property describes how/if an element is displayed on the canvas
(which may be on a printed page, a computer display etc.).

An element with a 'display' value of 'block' opens whitespace suitable
for a paragraph break.  Typically, elements like 'H1' and 'P' are of
type 'block'. A value of 'list-item' is similar to 'block' except that a
list-item marker is added. In HTML, 'LI' will typically have this value.

An element with a 'display' value of 'inline' results in a new inline
box on the same line as the previous content.

A value of 'none' turns off the display of the element, including
children elements and the surrounding box.

@example
  P @{ display: block @}
  EM @{ display: inline @}
  LI @{ display: list-item @}
  IMG @{ display: none @}
@end example

The last rule turns off the display of images.

A value of 'line' results in a single line break.  Emacs/W3 needs this
extension to be able to fully specify the behaviour of @sc{br} and
@sc{hr} elements within a stylesheet.

NOTE: Emacs/W3 defaults to using 'inline' for this property, which is a
slight deviation from the specification.

@item Applies to: @tab elements with 'display' value 'list-item'
@item Inherited: @tab yes
@item Percentage values: @tab N/A
@end multitable

The 'list-style' property is a shorthand notation for setting the three
properties 'list-style-type', 'list-style-image' and
'list-style-position' at the same place in the style sheet.

@example
  UL @{ list-style: upper-roman inside @}
  UL UL @{ list-style: circle outside @}
  LI.square @{ list-style: square @}
@end example

Setting 'list-style' directly on 'LI' elements can have unexpected
results. Consider:

@example
  <STYLE TYPE="text/css">
    OL.alpha LI  @{ list-style: lower-alpha @}
    UL LI        @{ list-style: disc @}
  </STYLE>
  <BODY>
    <OL CLASS=alpha>
      <LI>level 1
      <UL>
         <LI>level 2
      </UL>
    </OL>
  </BODY>
@end example

Since the specificity (as defined in the cascading order) is higher for
the first rule in the style sheet in the example above, it will override
the second rule on all 'LI' elements and only 'lower-alpha' list styles
will be used. It is therefore recommended to set 'list-style' only on
the list type elements:

@example
  OL.alpha  @{ list-style: lower-alpha @}
  UL        @{ list-style: disc @}
@end example

In the above example, inheritance will transfer the 'list-style' values
from 'OL' and 'UL' elements to 'LI' elements.

A URL value can be combined with any other value:

@example
  UL @{ list-style: url(http://png.com/ellipse.png) disc @}
@end example

In the example above, the 'disc' will be used when the image is
unavailable.

@node Media Selection, Speech Properties, Classification, Properties
@subsection Media Selection

To specify that a stylesheet declaration should only apply when using a
certain media type (ie: different font families preferred when printing
versus on-screen presentation), the declarations should be wrapped in
the proposed @b{@@media} directive.

The @@media directive takes two arguments, the media type, and a block
of style declarations.

@example
  @@media print @{ 
    BODY @{ font-size: 10pt @}
    H1 @{ font-size: 14pt @}

The '@@media' construct also allows to put include style sheet rules
for various media in the same style sheet:

@example
  @@media print @{

  @@media screen @{
    BODY @{ font-size: 12pt @}

@node Speech Properties,  , Media Selection, Properties
@subsection Speech Properties

Those of us who are sighted are accustomed to visual presentation of
@sc{html} documents, frequently on a bitmapped display. This is not the
only possible presentation method, however. Aural presentation, using a
combination of speech synthesis and 'audio icons', provides an
alternative presentation. This form of presentation is in current use by
the blind and print-impaired communities.

Often such aural presentation occurs by converting the document to plain
text and feeding this to a 'screen reader' -- software or hardware that
simply reads all the characters on the screen. This results in less
effective presentation than would be the case if the document structure
were retained.

There are other large markets for aural presentation, including in-car
and home entertainment use; aurual or mixed aural/visual presentation is
thus likely to increase in importance over the next few years. Realizing
that that the aural rendering is essentially independent of the visual
rendering:

@itemize @bullet

Allows orthogonal aural and visual views.

@item Initial: @tab medium
@item Applies to: @tab all elements
@item Inherited: @tab yes
@item Percentage values: @tab relative to user-specified mapping
@end multitable

The legal range of percentage values is 0% to 100%. There is a fixed
mapping between keyword values and percentages:

@itemize @bullet
@item
'x-soft' = '0%'
@item
'soft' = '25%'
@item
'medium' = '50%'
@item
'loud' = '75%'
@item
'x-loud' = '100%'
@end itemize

Volume refers to the median volume of the waveform. In other words, a
highly inflected voice at a volume of 50 might peak well above
that. Note that '0%' does not mean the same as "mute". 0% represents the
minimum audible volume level and 100% corresponds to the maximum
comfortable level. The UA should allow the values corresponding to 0%
and 100% to be set by the user. Suitable values depend on the equipment
in use (speakers, headphones), the environment (in car, home theater,
library) and personal preferences. Some examples:

@itemize @bullet
@item
A browser for in-car use has a setting for when there is lots of
background noise . 0% would map to a fairly high level and 100% to a
quite high level. The overall values are likely to be human adjustable
for comfort, for example with a physical volume control: what this
proposal does is adjust the dynamic range.
@item
Another speech browser is being used in the home, late at night, (don't
annoy the neighbors) or in a shared study room. 0% is set to very quiet
and 100% to a fairly quiet level, too. As with the first example, there
is a low slope; the dynamic range is reduced. The actual volumes are low
here, wheras they were high in the first example.
@item
In a quiet and isolated house, an expensive hifi home theatre setup. 0%
is set fairly low and 100% to quite high; there is wide dynamic range.
@end itemize

The same authors stylesheet could be used in all cases, simply by
mapping the 0 and 100 points suitably at the client side.

@item Value: @tab <time> | <percentage>
@item Initial: @tab UA specific
@item Applies to: @tab all elements
@item Inherited: @tab no
@item Percentage values: @tab speed
@end multitable

This property specifies the pause before elements. It may be given in an
absolute units (seconds, milliseconds) or as a relative value in which
case it is relative to the reciprocal of the 'speed' property: if speed
is 120 words per minute (ie a word takes half a second -- 500
milliseconds) then a pause-before of 100% means a pause of 500 ms and a
pause-before of 20% means 100ms.

Using relative units gives more robust stylesheets in the face of large
changes in speed.

This property specifies the pause after elements. Values are specified
the same way as 'pause-before'.

The 'pause' property is a shorthand for setting 'pause-before' and
'pause-after'. The first value is pause-before and the second is
pause-after. If only one value is given, it applies to both properties.

Examples:

@example
  H1 @{ pause: 20ms @}       /* pause-before: 20ms; pause-after: 20ms */
  H2 @{ pause: 30ms 40ms @}  /* pause-before: 30ms; pause-after: 40ms */

Auditory icons are another way to distinguish semantic elements. Sounds
may be played before, and/or after the element to delimit it. The same
sound can be used both before and after, using the cue property.

Examples:

@example

The value is a prioritized list of voice family names. Generic families
are male, female, and child.

Examples of specific voice families are: comedian, paul, lisa

Specifies the level of stress (assertiveness or emphasis) of the
speaking voice. English is a stressed language, and different parts of a
sentence are assigned primary, secondary or tertiary stress. The value
of property 'stress' controls the amount of inflection that results from
these stress markers.

Increasing the value of this property results in the speech being more
strongly inflected. It is in a sense dual to property 'pitch-range' and
is provided to allow developers to exploit higher-end auditory displays.

@node richness, speak-punctuation, stress, Speech Properties

@item Value: @tab <percentage>
@item Initial: @tab medium (50%)
@item Applies to: @tab all elements
@item Inherited: @tab yes
@end multitable

Specifies the richness (brightness) of the speaking voice. Different
speech devices may require the setting of one or more device-specific
parameters to achieve this effect.

The effect of increasing richness is to produce a voice that carries --
reducing richness produces a soft, mellifluous voice.

'code' indicates that punctuation such as semicolons, braces, and so on
are to be spoken literally. The default value of 'none' means that
punctuation is not spoken but instead is rendered naturally as various
pauses.

@node speak-date, speak-numeral, speak-punctuation, Speech Properties

This is a hint that the element contains a date and also how that date
should be spoken. month-day-year is common in the USA, while
day-month-year is common in Europe and year-month-day is also used.

This should really be an HTML tag not a stylesheet property, since it
gives semantic information about the content.

@chapter MIME Support
@sc{mime} is an emerging standard for multimedia mail.  It offers a very
flexible typing mechanism.  The type of a file or message is specified
in two parts, separated by a '/'.  The first part is the general
category of the data (text, application, image, etc.).  The second part
is the specific type of data (postscript, png, jpeg, etc.).  So
@samp{text/html} specifies an @sc{html} document, whereas
@samp{image/x-xwindowdump} specifies an image of an Xwindow taken with
the @file{xwd} program.


This typing allows much more flexibility in naming files.  @sc{http}/1.0
servers can now send back content-type headers in response to a request,
and not have the client second-guess it based on file extensions.  @sc{html}
files can now be named @file{something.png} (not a great idea, but
possible).

@section Adding MIME types based on file extensions

@vindex mm-mime-extensions
For some protocols however, it is still necessary to guess the content
of a file based on the file extension.  This type of guess-work should
only be needed when accessing files via @sc{ftp}, local file access, or old
@sc{http}/0.9 servers.

Instead of specifying how to view things twice, once based on
content-type and once based on the file extension, it is easier to map
file extensions to MIME content-types.  The variable that controls this
is @code{mm-mime-extensions}.

This variable is an assoc list of file extensions and the corresponding
MIME content-type.  A sample entry looks like: @samp{(".movie"
. "video/x-sgi-movie")} This makes all files that end in @file{.movie}
(@file{foo.movie} and @file{bar.movie}) be interpreted as SGI animation
files.  If a content-type is defined for the document, then this is
over-ridden.  Regular expressions can @b{NOT} be used.

@cindex mime-types file
@findex mm-parse-mimetypes
Both Mosaic and the NCSA @sc{http} daemon rely on a separate file for mapping
file extensions to MIME types.  Instead of having the users of Emacs/W3
duplicate this in lisp, this file can be parsed using the
@code{url-parse-mimetypes} function.  This function is called each time
w3 is loaded.  It tries to locate mimetype files in several places. If
the environment variable @code{MIMETYPES} is nonempty, then this is
assumed to specify a UNIX-like path of mimetype files (this is a colon
separated string of pathnames).  If the @code{MIMETYPES} environment
variable is empty, then Emacs/W3 looks for these files:

@enumerate
@item
@file{~/.mime-types}
@item
@file{/etc/mime-types}
@item
@file{/usr/etc/mime-types}
@item
@file{/usr/local/etc/mime-types}
@item
@file{/usr/local/www/conf/mime-types}
@end enumerate

Each line contains information for one @sc{http} type.  These types resemble
MIME types.  To add new ones, use subtypes beginning with x-, such as
application/x-myprogram.  Lines beginning with # are comment lines, and
suitably ignored.  Each line consists of:

type/subtype ext1 ext2 ...  ext@var{n}

type/subtype is the MIME-like type of the document. ext* is any number
of space-separated filename extensions which correspond to the MIME
type.

@node Specifying Viewers,  , Adding MIME types based on file extensions, MIME Support
@section Specifying Viewers

Not all files look as they should when parsed as an @sc{html} document
(whitespace is stripped, paragraphs are reformatted, and lots of little
changes that make the document look unrecognizable).  Files may be
passed to external programs or Emacs Lisp functions to be viewed.

Not all files can be viewed accurately from within an Emacs session (PNG
files for example, or audio files).  For this reason, the user can
specify file "viewers" based on MIME content-types.  This is done with
a standard mailcap file.  @xref{Mailcap Files}

@findex mm-add-mailcap-entry
As an alternative, the function @code{mm-add-mailcap-entry} can also be
used from an appropriate hook.@xref{Hooks}  This functions takes three
arguments, the major type ("@i{image}"), the minor type ("@i{png}"), and
an assoc list of information about the viewer.  Please see the @sc{url}
documentation for more specific information on what this assoc list
should look like.

@cindex Disk Cache

A cache stores the information on a page on the local machine.  When
requesting a page that is in the cache, Emacs/W3 can retrieve the page
from the cache more quickly than retrieving the page again from its
location out on the network.  With a well-populated cache, browsing the
web is dramatically faster.

The first time a page is requested, Emacs/W3 retrieves the page from the
network.  When requesting a page that is in the cache, Emacs/W3 checks
to see if the page has changed since it was last retrieved from the
remote machine.  If it has not changed, the local copy is used, saving
the transmission of the file over the network.

That is all there is to it.  Running the @code{clean-cache} shell script
fist is recommended, to allow for future cleaning of the cache.  This
shell script will remove all files that have not been accessed since it
was last run.  To keep the cache pared down, it is recommended that this
script be run from @i{at} or @i{cron} (see the manual pages for
crontab(5) or at(1) for more information)

With a large cache of documents on the local disk, it can be very handy
when traveling, or any other time the network connection is not active
(a laptop with a dial-on-demand PPP connection, etc).  Emacs/W3 can rely
solely on its cache, and avoid checking to see if the page has changed
on the remote server.  In the case of a dial-on-demand PPP connection,
this will keep the phone line free as long as possible, only bringing up
the PPP connection when asking for a page that is not located in the
cache.  This is very useful for demonstrations as well.  To turn this
feature on, set the variable @code{url-standalone-mode} to
non-@code{nil}, or choose the `Use Cache Only' menu item (under
`Options')

To access @sc{url}s from within RMAIL, the following hook should do the
trick.
@example
(add-hook 'rmail-mode-hook
	  (function
	   (lambda ()
	     (define-key rmail-mode-map [mouse-2] 'w3-maybe-follow-link-mouse)
	     (define-key rmail-mode-map "\r"      'w3-maybe-follow-link))))

@cindex Hooks

These are the various hooks that can be used to customize some of
Emacs/W3's behavior.  They are arranged in the order in which they would
happen when retrieving a document.  These are all 'normal hooks' in
standard Emacs-terminology, meaning they are functions (or lists of
functions) that are called consecutively.

@table @code
@vindex w3-load-hook
@item w3-load-hook
These hooks are run the first time a @sc{url} is fetched.  All the
Emacs/W3 variables are initialized before this hook is run.
@item w3-mode-hook
These hooks are run after a buffer has been parsed and displayed, but
before any inlined images are downloaded and converted.
@item w3-source-file-hook
These hooks are run after displaying a document's source.
@end table

@node Other Variables,  , Hooks, Advanced Features
@section Miscellaneous variables

There are lots of variables that control the real nitty-gritty of Emacs/W3
that the beginning user probably shouldn't mess with.  Here they are.

@table @code
@item url-bad-port-list
@vindex url-bad-port-list
List of ports to warn the user about connecting to.  Defaults to just
the mail and @sc{nntp} ports so a malicious @sc{html} author cannot spoof mail or
news to other people.
@item url-confirmation-func
@vindex url-confirmation-func
What function to use for asking yes or no functions.  Possible values
are @code{'yes-or-no-p} or @code{'y-or-n-p}, or any function that takes
a single argument (the prompt), and returns @code{t} only if a positive
answer is gotten.  Defaults to @code{'yes-or-no-p}.
@item w3-default-action
@vindex w3-default-action
A lisp symbol specifying what action to take for files with extensions
that are not in the @code{mm-mime-extensions} assoc list.  This is
useful in case Emacs/W3 ever run across files with weird extensions
(.foo, .README, .READMEFIRST, etc.).  In most circumstances, this should
not be required anymore.

Possible values: any lisp symbol.  Should be a function that takes no
arguments.  The return value does not matter, it is ignored.  Some examples
are @code{'w3-prepare-buffer} or @code{'indented-text-mode}.
@ignore
@item w3-icon-directory-list
@vindex w3-icon-directory-list
A list of directorys to look in for the w3 standard icons...  must end
in a /!  If the directory @code{data-directory}/w3 exists, then this is
automatically added to the default value of
http://cs.indiana.edu/elisp/w3/icons/.
@end ignore
@item w3-keep-old-buffers
@vindex w3-keep-old-buffers
Whether to keep old buffers around when following links.  To avoid lots
of buffers in one Emacs session, set this variable to @code{nil}.  I
recommend setting it to @code{t}, so that backtracking from one link to
another is faster.

@item url-passwd-entry-func
@vindex url-passwd-entry-func
This is a symbol indicating which function to call to read in a
password.  If this variable is @code{nil} at startup, it is initialized
depending on whether @dfn{EFS} or @dfn{ange-ftp} is being used.  This
function should accept the prompt string as its first argument, and the
default value as its second argument.

@item w3-reuse-buffers
@vindex w3-reuse-buffers
Determines what happens when @code{w3-fetch} is called on a document
that has already been loaded into another buffer.  Possible values are:
@code{nil}, @code{yes}, and @code{no}.  @code{nil} will ask the user if
Emacs/W3 should reuse the buffer (this is the default value).  A value of
@code{yes} means assume the user wants to always reuse the buffer.  A
value of @code{no} means assume the user always wants to re-fetch the
document.
@item w3-show-headers
@vindex w3-show-headers
This is a list of @sc{http}/1.0 headers to show at the end of a buffer.  All
the headers should be in lowercase.  They are inserted at the end of the
buffer in a <UL> list.  Alternatively, if this is simply @code{t}, then
all the @sc{http}/1.0 headers are shown.  The default value is
@code{nil}.
@item w3-show-status, url-show-status
@vindex url-show-status
@vindex w3-show-status
Whether to show progress messages in the minibuffer.
@code{w3-show-status} controls if messages about the parsing are
displayed, and @code{url-show-status} controls if a running total of the
number of bytes transferred is displayed.  These Can cause a large
performance hit if using a remote X display over a slow link, or a
terminal with a slow modem.
@item mm-content-transfer-encodings
@vindex mm-content-transfer-encodings
An assoc list of @var{Content-Transfer-Encodings} or
@var{Content-Encodings} and the appropriate decoding algorithms for each.
If the @code{cdr} of a node is a list, then this specifies the decoder is
an external program, with the program as the first item in the list, and
the rest of the list specifying arguments to be passed on the command line.
If using an external decoder, it must accept its input from @code{stdin}
and send its output to @code{stdout}.

If the @code{cdr} of a node is a symbol whose function definition is
non-@code{nil}, then that encoding can be handled internally.  The function
is called with 2 arguments, buffer positions bounding the region to be
decoded.  The function should completely replace that region with the
unencoded information.

Currently supported transfer encodings are: base64, x-gzip, 7bit, 8bit,
binary, x-compress, x-hqx, and quoted-printable.
@item url-uncompressor-alist
@vindex url-uncompressor-alist
An assoc list of file extensions and the appropriate uncompression
programs for each.  This is used to build the Accept-encoding header for
@sc{http}/1.0 requests.

@appendix Reporting Bugs
@cindex Reporting Bugs
@cindex Bugs
@cindex Contacting the author

If any bugs are discovered in Emacs/W3, please report them to the
mailing list @t{w3-beta@@indiana.edu} - this is where the brave souls
who beta test the latest versions of Emacs/W3 reside, and are generally
very responsive to bug reports.

@kindex w
Please make sure to use the bug submission feature of Emacs/W3, so that
all relevant information will be sent along with your bug report.  By
default this is bound to the `@key{w}' key when in an Emacs/W3 buffer,
or you can use @key{M-x w3-submit-bug} from anywhere within Emacs.

For problems that are causing emacs to signal and error, please send a
backtrace.  You can get a backtrace by @kbd{M-x setvariable RET
debug-on-error RET t RET}, and then reproduce the error.

If the problem is visual, please capture a copy of the output and mail
it along with the bug report (preferably as a MIME attachment, but
anything will do).  You can use the @code{xwd} program under X-windows
for this, or @key{Alt-PrintScreen} under Windows 95/NT.  Sorry, but I
don't remember what the magic incarnation is for doing a screen dump
under NeXTstep or OS/2.

If the problem is actually causing Emacs to crash, then you will need to
also mail the maintainers of the various Emacs distributions with the
bug.  Please use the @t{gnu.emacs.bug} newgroup for reporting bugs with
GNU Emacs 19, and @t{comp.emacs.xemacs} for reporting bugs with XEmacs
19 or XEmacs 20.  I am actively involved with the beta testing of the
latest versions of both branches of Emacs, and if I can reproduce the
problem, I will do my best to see it gets fixed in the next release.

It is also important to always maintain as much context as possible in
your responses.  I get so much email from my various Emacs-activities
and work, that I cannot remember everything.  If you send a bug report,
and I send you a reply, and you reply with 'no that didn't work', then
odds are I will have no clue what didn't work, much less what that was
trying to fix in the first place.  It will be much quicker and less
painful if I don't have to waste a round-trip email exchange saying
'what are you talking about'.

@node Dealing with Firewalls, Proxy Gateways, Reporting Bugs, Top
@appendix Dealing with Firewalls
By default, Emacs can support standard @sc{tcp}/@sc{ip} network
connections on almost all the platforms it runs on (Unix, @sc{vms},
Windows, etc).  However, there are several situations where it is not
sufficient.

@table @b
@cindex Firewalls
@item Firewalls
It is becoming more and more common to be behind a firewall or some
other system that restricts your outbound network activity, especially
if you are like me and away from the wonderful world of academia.
Emacs/W3 has several different methods to get around firewalls (not to
worry though - none of them should get you in trouble with the local
@sc{mis} department.)

@item Emacs cannot resolve hostnames.
@cindex Faulty hostname resolvers
@cindex Broken SunOS libc
@cindex Hostname resolution
This happens quite often on SunOS workstations and some ULTRIX machines.
Some C libraries do not include the hostname resolver routines in their
static libraries.  If Emacs was linked statically, and was not linked
with the resolver libraries, it wil not be able to get to any machines
off the local network.  This is characterized by being able to reach
someplace with a raw ip number, but not its hostname
(@url{http://129.79.254.191/} works, but
@url{http://www.cs.indiana.edu/} doesn't).

The best solution for this problem is to recompile Emacs, making sure to
either link dynamically (if available on your operating system), or
include the @file{-lresolv}.

@cindex url-gateway-broken-resolution
If you do not have the disk space or the appropriate permissions to
recompile Emacs, another alternative is using the @file{nslookup}
program to do hostname resolution.  To turn this on, set the variable
@code{url-gateway-broken-resolution} in your @file{~/.emacs} file.  This
runs the program specified by @code{url-gateway-nslookup-program} (by
default "@code{nslookup}" to do hostname resolution.  This program should
expect a single argument on the command line - the hostname to resolve,
and should produce output similar to the standard Unix @file{nslookup}
program:

@example
Name: www.cs.indiana.ed
Address: 129.79.254.191
@end example

@cindex @sc{term}
@item Using @sc{term} (or @sc{term}-like) Networking Software
@sc{term} @footnote{@sc{term} is a user-level protocol for emulating
@sc{ip} over a serial line.  More information is available at
@url{ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/comm/term}} for slip-like
access to the internet.

@sc{note}: XEmacs and Emacs 19.22 or later have patches to enable native
@sc{term} networking.  To enable it, @code{#define TERM} in the
appropriate s/*.h file for the operating system, then change the
@code{SYSTEM_LIBS} definition to include the @file{termnet} library that
comes with the latest versions of @sc{term}.

If you run into any problems with the native @sc{term} networking
support in Emacs or XEmacs, please let @t{wmperry@@cs.indiana.edu} know,

@end table

@vindex url-gateway-local-host-regexp
Emacs/W3 has support for using the gateway mechanism for certain
domains, and directly connecting to others.  The variable
@code{url-gateway-local-host-regexp} controls this behaviour.  This is a
regular expression @footnote{Please see the full Emacs distribution for
a description of regular expressions} that matches local hosts that do
not require the use of a gateway.  If @code{nil}, then all connections
are made through the gateway.

@vindex url-gateway-method
Emacs/W3 supports several methods of getting around gateways.  The
variable @code{url-gateway-method} controls which of these methods is
used.  This variable can have several values (use these as symbol names,
not strings), ie: @samp{(setq url-gateway-method 'telnet)}.  Possible
values are:

@table @dfn
@item telnet
Use this method if you must first telnet and log into a gateway host,
and then run telnet from that host to connect to outside machines.

@item native
This means that Emacs/W3 should use the builtin networking code of
Emacs.  This should be used only if there is no firewall, or the Emacs
source has already been hacked to get around the firewall.
@end table

Emacs/W3 should now be able to get outside the local network.  If none
of this makes sense, its probably my fault.  Please check with the
network administrators to see if they have a program that does most of
this already, since somebody somewhere at the company has probably been
through something similar to this before, and would be much more
helpful/knowledgeable about the local setup than I would be.  But feel
free to mail me as a last resort.

@cindex Proxy Servers
@cindex Proxies
@cindex Proxies, environment variables
@cindex HTTP Proxy

In late January 1993, Kevin Altis and Lou Montulli proposed and
implemented a new proxy service.  This service requires the use of
environment variables to specify a gateway server/port # to send
protocol requests to.  Each protocol (@sc{http}, @sc{wais}, gopher,
@sc{ftp}, etc.) can have a different gateway server.  The environment
variables are @code{PROTOCOL}_proxy, where @code{PROTOCOL} is one of the
supported network protocols (gopher, file, @sc{http}, @sc{ftp}, etc.)

@cindex No Proxy
@cindex Proxies, exclusion lists
@vindex NO_PROXY
For companies with internal intranets, it will usually be helpful to
define a list of hosts that should be contacted directly, @b{not} sent
through the proxy.  The @code{NO_PROXY} environment variable controls
what hosts are able to be contacted directly.  This should be a comma
separated list of hostnames, domain names, or a mixture of both.
Asterisks can be used as a wildcard.  For example:

@example
NO_PROXY=*.aventail.com,home.com,*.seanet.com
@end example

tells Emacs/W3 to contact all machines in the @b{aventail.com} and
@b{seanet.com} domains directly, as well as the machine named
@b{home.com}.

@vindex url-proxy-services
@cindex Proxies, setting from lisp
For those adventurous souls who enjoy writing regular expressions, all
the proxy settings can be manipulated from Emacs-Lisp.  The variable
@code{url-proxy-services} controls this.  This is an assoc list, keyed
on the protocol type (@sc{http}, gopher, etc) in all lowercase.  The
@code{cdr} of each entry should be the fully-specified @sc{url} of the proxy
server to contact, or, in the case of the special "no_proxy" entry, a
regular expression that matches any hostnames that should be contacted
directly.

@example
(setq url-proxy-services '(("http"     . "http://proxy.aventail.com/")
                           ("no_proxy" . "^.*\\(aventail\\|seanet\\)\.com")))

In order to use SSL in Emacs/W3, an implementation of SSL is necessary.
Emacs/W3 is configued to work out of the box with SSLeay 0.6.6 or later.
For best results, you should apply a patch that makes the SSLeay client
much quieter about what it reports.

You can download SSLeay from
@url{ftp://ftp.psy.uq.oz.au/pub/Crypto/SSL/}

The following variables control how the external program is invoked.

@table @code

The name of the program to run, as a string.

@example
(setq ssl-program-name "s_client")
@end example

@item ssl-program-arguments
@vindex ssl-program-arguments
This should be used if your SSL program needs command line switches to
specify any behaviour (certificate file locations, etc).  This is a list
of strings and symbols.

The special symbols 'host and 'port may be used in the list of arguments
and will be replaced with the hostname and service/port that will be
connected to.

@example
(setq ssl-program-arguments '("-host" host "-port" service "-verify" "4"

@node Mailcap Files, Down with DoubleClick, Installing SSL, Top
@appendix Mailcap Files
NCSA Mosaic and almost all other WWW browsers rely on a separate file
for mapping MIME types to external viewing programs.  This takes some of
the burden off of browser developers, so each browser does not have to
support all image formats, or postscript, etc.  Instead of having the
users of Emacs/W3 duplicate this in lisp, this file can be parsed using
the @code{mm-parse-mailcaps} function.  This function is called each
time Emacs/W3 is loaded.  It tries to locate mimetype files in several
places. If the environment variable @code{MAILCAPS} is nonempty, then
this is assumed to specify a UNIX-like path of mimetype files (this is a
colon separated string of pathnames).  If the @code{MAILCAPS}
environment variable is empty, then Emacs/W3 looks for these
files:

@enumerate
@item
@file{~/.mailcap}
@item
@file{/etc/mailcap}
@item
@file{/usr/etc/mailcap}
@item
@file{/usr/local/etc/mailcap}
@end enumerate

This format of this file is specified in RFC 1343, but a brief synopsis
follows (this is taken verbatim from sections of RFC 1343).

Each mailcap file consists of a set of entries that describe the proper
handling of one media type at the local site.  For example, one line
might tell how to display a message in Group III fax format.  A mailcap
file consists of a sequence of such individual entries, separated by
newlines (according to the operating system's newline
conventions). Blank lines and lines that start with the "#" character
(ASCII 35) are considered comments, and are ignored.  Long entries may
be continued on multiple lines if each non-terminal line ends with a
backslash character ('\', ASCII 92), in which case the multiple lines
are to be treated as a single mailcap entry.  Note that for such
"continued" lines, the backslash must be the last character on the line
to be continued.

Each mailcap entry consists of a number of fields, separated by
semi-colons.  The first two fields are required, and must occur in the
specified order.  The remaining fields are optional, and may appear in
any order.

The first field is the content-type, which indicates the type of data
this mailcap entry describes how to handle.  It is to be matched against
the type/subtype specification in the "Content-Type" header field of an
Internet mail message.  If the subtype is specified as "*", it is
intended to match all subtypes of the named content-type.

The second field, view-command, is a specification of how the message or
body part can be viewed at the local site.  Although the syntax of this
field is fully specified, the semantics of program execution are
necessarily somewhat operating system dependent.

The optional fields, which may be given in any order, are as follows:
@itemize @bullet
@item
The "compose" field may be used to specify a program that can be used to
compose a new body or body part in the given format.  Its intended use
is to support mail composing agents that support the composition of
multiple types of mail using external composing agents.  As with the
view- command, the semantics of program execution are operating system
dependent.  The result of the composing program may be data that is not
yet suitable for mail transport---that is, a Content-Transfer-Encoding
may need to be applied to the data.
@item
The "composetyped" field is similar to the "compose" field, but is to be
used when the composing program needs to specify the Content-type header
field to be applied to the composed data.  The "compose" field is
simpler, and is preferred for use with existing (non-mail-oriented)
programs for composing data in a given format.  The "composetyped" field
is necessary when the Content-type information must include auxilliary
parameters, and the composition program must then know enough about mail
formats to produce output that includes the mail type
information.
@item
The "edit" field may be used to specify a program that can be used to
edit a body or body part in the given format.  In many cases, it may be
identical in content to the "compose" field, and shares the
operating-system dependent semantics for program execution.
@item
The "print" field may be used to specify a program that can be used to
print a message or body part in the given format.  As with the
view-command, the semantics of program execution are operating system
dependent.
@item
The "test" field may be used to test some external condition (e.g.  the
machine architecture, or the window system in use) to determine whether
or not the mailcap line applies.  It specifies a program to be run to
test some condition.  The semantics of execution and of the value
returned by the test program are operating system dependent.  If the
test fails, a subsequent mailcap entry should be sought.  Multiple test
fields are not permitted---since a test can call a program, it can
already be arbitrarily complex.
@item
The "needsterminal" field indicates that the view-command must be run on
an interactive terminal.  This is needed to inform window-oriented user
agents that an interactive terminal is needed.  (The decision is not
left exclusively to the view-command because in some circumstances it
may not be possible for such programs to tell whether or not they are on
interactive terminals.)  The needsterminal command should be assumed to
apply to the compose and edit commands, too, if they exist.  Note that
this is NOT a test---it is a requirement for the environment in which
the program will be executed, and should typically cause the creation of
a terminal window when not executed on either a real terminal or a
terminal window.
@item
The "copiousoutput" field indicates that the output from the
view-command will be an extended stream of output, and is to be
interpreted as advice to the UA (User Agent mail- reading program) that
the output should be either paged or made scrollable. Note that it is
probably a mistake if needsterminal and copiousoutput are both
specified.
@item
The "description" field simply provides a textual description,
optionally quoted, that describes the type of data, to be used
optionally by mail readers that wish to describe the data before
offering to display it.
@item
The "x11-bitmap" field names a file, in X11 bitmap (xbm) format, which
points to an appropriate icon to be used to visually denote the presence
of this kind of data.
@item
Any other fields beginning with "x-" may be included for local or
mailer-specific extensions of this format.  Implementations should
simply ignore all such unrecognized fields to permit such extensions,
some of which might be standardized in a future version of this
document.
