He coined the term „World Wide Web,“ wrote the first World Wide Web server, „httpd,“ and the first client program (a browser and editor), „WorldWideWeb,“ in October 1990. He wrote the first version of the „HyperText Markup Language“ (HTML), the document formatting language with the capability for hypertext links that became the primary publishing format for the Web.
