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.

This article explores the Semantic Web as a natural successor of the World Wide Web.
