iHTML is a powerful server side scripting language. iHTML
is an excellent tool for creating dynamic content, and for connecting
to ODBC databases. It is very similar to Cold Fusion and Active
Server Pages. iHTML is powerful, yet very easy to use. In fact,
most iHTML tags look very similar to HTML tags, so learning
iHTML is easy.
To use IHTML on a page you need to:
1 place <!iHTML>
in the first line
2 Rename the file so the extension is .ihtml
iHTML can do anything that requires server-side activity.
iHTML can do everything that ASP, Cold Fusion, and CGI would
normally be used for. Since iHTML runs lightning fast, it
is often preferable to use iHTML instead of CGI.
iHTML can connect to databases, connect to remote web servers,
dynamically format the page, add the current date to an existing
page, show the time on a page, write gif files on the fly,
execute complex logic statements, and much more. iHTML is
considered to be a full language in many respects, since it
can do such a wide variety of tasks.
There are some examples of iHTML in use at http://www.ihtml.com/learning/examples/
