NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
From The Developers...

In addition to developing new technologies, we also tried to address some common problems that exist with providing access to a large content database.

Core Technologies of WW2010
areas of advancement

In the development of WW2010, we have explored and implemented new technologies in areas of data access and database management, web server appearance, layout, navigation and maintenance. This section takes a closer look at these core technologies.

Efficient Navigation:

  • The WW2010 framework provides an easy-to-use and consistent navigation system in the form of a hierarchical vertical menubar on each page. Users can move between any one of hundreds of pages with only a few clicks and return easily.

Automated Layout:

  • Each page is formatted using templates and the links to the navigation menu system are maintained automatically. Web server appearance can be globally changed in seconds.

Multiple Interfaces:

  • Pages can be displayed in both "graphics" and "text" based interfaces and with or without "java enhancement" to accommodate a variety of user network and hardware capabilities. (The java enhancement mode is not yet operational).

Educational CD-ROM:

  • Static portions of WW2010 such as instructional resources can easily be replicated and run off of CD-ROM...ideal for classroom use.
