Tech Tip Tuesday: Fundamental File Types – Part 3


  • This is the native language of the World Wide Web. It was developed by Tim Boerners-Lee who wanted a way to make the Internet more accessible and easier to navigate. He developed tools that allow designers to use "tags" to give attributes to text like formatting, hyperlinks, and to show images.  A web browser is needed to read these files. HTML is an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language.


  • This extension used by Adobe for Portable Document File format.  The best way to explain this is to think of it as hitting the print button on the computer but getting a digital print.  This file format was developed to share files using a small size and that was not editable.  If you share Word Processing files they are editable.  *.pdf files are editable too but not as easily.  Most forms and documents for printing are formatted in this format.
