hypertext, language, multimedia, text, World-Wide Web (SMIL)
A language based on Extensible Markup Language (XML), that
enables people without programming or scripting backgrounds to
author multimedia presentations in a simple text editor.
SMIL is suitable for use on the World-Wide Web.
For example, a developer can write SMIL to display an image
after an audio track ends.
SMIL uses two main tags: parallel and sequential. It refers
to media objects by URLs, allowing them to be shared between
presentations and stored on different servers for loadbalancing. The language can also associate different media
objects with different bandwidths.
