    Language Explanations?

    Does anyone know of a site which has simple, short, sharp explanations for the following languages. Like what they do and why they are useful:
    (X)HTML,
    SSI's,
    CSS,
    WAP/WML,
    JavaScript,
    ASP/VBS.

    w3schools.com was the first place I looked, but they don't (as far as I saw) have a short overview of each language

    What I need is a short overview that complete beginners.

    W1LL,

    Did you have a look at the 'Introduction' pages, at W3Schools, for each of the lessons?

    Eg
    http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_intro.asp
    http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_intro.asp

    I've had a look around but couldn't really find anything else that was as clear and concise.

    Having said that, you may want to try www.devguru.com. Their intros for each technology might be a bit much for beginners but there's some good bits you could use. They've also got references that you can download for free.
