The World Wide Web is based primarily on documents written in HTML. This is a language that is useful for describing and visual presentation, but has limited ability to classify the blocks of text on a page. The Semantic Web is namely a project that intends to create a universal medium for information exchange by giving meaning, in a manner understandable by machines, to the content of documents on the Web. Thus, the Semantic Web extends the ability of the World Wide Web through the use of standards, markup languages and related processing tools, aiming at making information in Web-based documents more accessible.
