From signs which present distinctive perceptive forms to signs which present distinctive meaning with metadata identity - and back. From representational (HTML) to a semantic web with separated presentation (HTML+CSS). Toward pragmatic signs spaces in structuring the Web - application oriented, platform independent, open and safe. In less expected environment with applets and Java. In predefined situation in some way- with some sort of XML languages, on example, forms oriented - with FormsML, mobility oriented - WML, more visual intelligibility - VRML, and other aural or multimodal oriented signs. Frequent incidents of disappearing of laptops as against centralized delegating of interactivity, logic filtering and content adaptation on standardized fix and mobile web-client interfaces. Modification of "access from everywhere, whereas maintenance of data integrity located in one place", in slightly new trends started with Topclass player or Oracle 8i Lite. Transformational limitations of XSLT and search for other solutions of dynamic web-content transformation with general scripting language Perl, Python, Tcl/TK or new XML-script. Understanding genesis of voice structural marked content (XML) in contrast to non-structured representation recorded raw - .au, .wav or other streaming content.
