Programming static WWW pages in Scheme

We will now return to the main topic of this talk, namely programming of ordinary, static WWW pages.

Given the HTML Scheme library it became attractive to write plain and static WWW pages in Scheme too

  • The main advantages compared to an HTML solution:

    • Abstractions from HTML details

    • Automation of routine tasks

We will return to both abstraction and automation later in the presentation.

The step from HTML to a Scheme basis is similar to the expected transition from HTML to XML (abstraction only)

This observation is in relation to abstraction. XML supports 'your own' domain-specific tags. However, in relation to automation of routine tasks, XML has nothing to offer.
