Welcome to the heitml Web Pages!

heitml (pronounced "Hi"-TML) significantly extends and enhances the functionality of HTML by definable tags and full programming features. This makes dynamic content and database applications possible simply within the HTML world, without CGI and without external scripting or programming languages.

This means you, as an HTML author, can embed applications in your web pages, simply by using some new tags without CGI and without programming. As an advanced user or programmer on the other hand you can create and program powerful tag libraries. This approach makes heitml suitable for HTML newcomers and professional programmers alike.

heitml runs on the web server and dynamically generates HTML, so heitml is compatible with the internet standards and with any web browser. It allows full access to databases while shielding the user from any unneccesary CGI complexity. heitml has been developed according to the newst research and Technology in compiler construction and transaction systems.

heitml pages are developed just the same way as HTML pages, with a text editor or HTML editor, and placed on the web server as usual. However now pages can contain dynamic heitml tags and access tag libraries. You can use these tags to access the database, to create dynamic content, to send emails, and even to create powerful applications like registration databases and shopping systems.

HTML newcomers and professional programmers alike will be amazed at how quickly and easily they can design exciting applications like our Interactive Guestbook without resorting to complex and difficult to learn CGI scripts, simply by using the tools provided in our dba Library.

heitml is accompanied by a wide range of tag libraries, to create guestbooks, database maintenance applications, extensible query forms, powerful email forms or structure your web site using a hierarchic menu. These tools are ready to go, just add the corresponding tags to your web site.

As an experienced programmer you can make fully use of the heitml persistent dynamic tuple architecture : heitml is not just a scripting language with dynamic typing, full power expression evaluation, recursive procedures and extensive parameter passing features, but it also features persistent dynamic tuples to automatically keep session data of any size.

heitml has so many features and uses it is impossible to describe it in a single Web Page. For that reason we have set up this Web Site in a manner that allows you to obtain a simple product "overview", or to delve as deeply as you want into the "nuts and bolts" of the language. Whichever manner you choose, we think you'll find that heitml has a lot to offer, and we hope you'll agree that it truly "takes the World Wide Web to a Higher Level!"

The menu on the left-hand side of the screen will help you navigate our Web Site in an organized and methodical manner, but you can also use our Quick Menu to instantly jump to any page with a single mouse-click.

If you're a first-time visitor to this Site, we suggest that you check out the heitml Interactive Guestbook for a truly impressive demonstration of how heitml can make your Web Pages more Interactive. If you sign our Guestbook, you can leave comments or tell us about your favorite Web Site using HTML formatting commands. It's like creating your own private Web Page and seeing it published immediately!

The heitml Features section provides a Quick Summary of Features and Benefits, as well as Pages that are tailored to address the specific needs and questions of Designers and Programmers Our Language Guide provides an on-line tutorial that demonstrates in a practical manner some of the ways you can use heitml to develop, enhance and simplify your Web Pages and Applications.

The Language Reference is for those looking for specific information regarding the syntax, structure and use of the various language elements. However, it would be a good idea for everyone to read the General Design page, which provides an overview of the specific kinds of problems heitml is designed to solve.

Naturally, you'll want to know whether heitml runs on the specifc Operating System, Web Server, or SQL database software you're currently using, and you'll find all that information in our Supported Platforms section.

Finally we invite you to use your heitml version you just downloaded for a 30 day test period. If you have any problems, would like a new version, or just want to know the news, please check out our web site.
