To include analysis of static HTML web pages and dynamic web pages, eg PHP, ASP.NET, Java Servlets.
Static vs dynamic pages
A static web page (sometimes called a flat page/stationary page) is a web page that is delivered to the user exactly as stored, in contrast to dynamic web pages which are generated by a web application.
Consequently, a static web page displays the same information for all users, from all contexts, subject to modern capabilities of a web server to negotiate content-type or language of the document where such versions are available and the server is configured to do so.
A server side dynamic web page is a web page whose construction is controlled by a server-side script such as PHP. In server-side scripting, parameters determine how the assembly of every new web page proceeds, including the setting up of more client-side processing.
These standards are used from the IB Computer Science Subject Guide
