These are the main parts of all URLs. The additional ones are the port and the location of the server resource, and fragment identifier, i.e., query string.

Universal Unique Identifier is a 128-bit number that represents a unique identity of an item on the web. Many things add to its uniqueness, e.g., the reference to the host’s network, the exact time of the transaction, and a randomly generated component that ensures additional safety.

A document that you can edit via WYSIWYG can be either a web page, spreadsheet, or presentation. Since it is a customer-friendly editor, there is no need to remember the names of the commands. The changes you make are immediately visible.

XHTML – Extensible HyperText Markup Language

Extensible HyperText Markup Language extends versions of HTML (HyperText Markup Language) while following the guidelines of XML (Extensible Markup Language). Developers use it for creating web page tags, which enables a better organization of the pages. Also, it makes it easier for them to customize the appearance. When it comes to syntax, you must be extremely careful with quotes and capitalization, since it has to be perfect. Some of the main elements, besides the DOCTYPE declaration, are  <html>, <head>, <title>, and <body>.


That was quite the list, right? Now you know the most commonly used abbreviations and acronyms in Magento 2.
