Webification

Also see Webify.

Webification (sometimes seen with a lower case w) is the act of converting content from its original format into a format capable of being displayed on the World Wide Web. Some conversion examples are:

  • A Postscript source file or ASCII text to a Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) file
  • A Microsoft Word document to HTML (sometimes referred to as "DOC to HTML"). More recent versions of Microsoft Word include this capability.
  • Hard-copy print publication pages into files in the Portable Document Format (PDF) for viewing on the Web with Adobe's downloadable Acrobat viewer
  • A Lotus Notes database to HTML files
  • An image in a scanned-in or other format to a Web-ready image, either a GIF or a JPEG file
  • A speech or interview into a file in the RealAudio format for playing as streaming sound on the Web
  • A video tape recording into a streaming video file

Using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) from the Web browser, text pages (with files in the ASCII TXT format) can also be "Webified" for display by Web users. Many Internet Request for Comment (RFC) documents are available on the Web in the text format. The only Webification these files need is to simply make them available in a directory accessible to the FTP server.

2) Webification is the name of a Web site firm in Hollywood, Florida, that specializes in internetworking and in Web site design.
