The W3C is an international industry consortium that was founded in 1994 to develop common protocols for the evolution of the World Wide Web. The W3C works with the global community to produce specifications and references that are vendor neutral and freely available throughout the world. Initially, the W3C was established in collaboration with CERN, where the Web originated, with support from DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and the European Commission. The W3C Web site has a wealth of information about the Internet and emerging protocols and standards. It currently manages a number of Internet standards.
