zc0000 commented on the word piecemeal
Nonbacktracking subexpression (also known as a "greedy" subexpression). The subexpression is fully matched once, and then does not participate piecemeal in backtracking. (That is, the subexpression matches only strings that would be matched by the subexpression alone.)

In this regard, ASP.NET behaves like any other server application that performs some background work on behalf of multiple clients.
zc0000 commented on the word scale up

zc0000 commented on the word rather than
The type converter for modifiers uses a plus sign (+) as a delimiter rather than a comma (,) so that the more traditional syntax to represent key combinations, such as "Ctrl+Alt", is supported in markup.

zc0000 commented on the word streamlined
Attribute syntax is the most streamlined property setting syntax and will be the most intuitive syntax to use for developers that have used markup languages in the past.
zc0000 commented on the word mistakenly
New authors of XML documents often misunderstand the purpose of a CDATA section, mistakenly believing that its purpose is to "protect" data from being treated as ordinary character data during processing.
The term CDATA, meaning character data, is used for distinct, but related purposes in the markup languages SGML and XML. The term indicates that a certain portion of the document is general character data, rather than non-character data or character data with a more specific, limited structure.
zc0000 commented on the word set apart
In editing XML documents, it is often convenient to use "white space" (spaces, tabs, and blank lines) to set apart the markup for greater readability.
zc0000 commented on the word curl

In addition to declaring an object, there are also techniques you can use in XAML to reference existing objects. This is discussed in detail in the Markup Extensions section of this topic.

zc0000 commented on the word as well as
In contrast, the value of the Name property, as well as utility methods for working with objects based on the name that the Name property declares, treat the name string as case-sensitive.
zc0000 commented on the word per
XAML as a language is case-sensitive. This is another consequence of XAML being based on XML, which is also case-sensitive per the XML language definitions.
zc0000 commented on the word live up
Because it strives to deliver its functionality on a single page, an Ajax web portal that lives up to its promise is invariably a masterpiece of Ajax technology. It is a great architectural challenge to provide so much on one page without compromising the performance of either the server or client. Some of the unique challenges seen only in web portals include incorporating many features into one web application and aggregating content from every kind of web site.

zc0000 commented on the word on the brink of
It seems that the Internet world changes completely every few years. We are on the brink of change now. Since the early 1990s, HTML has evolved through several language specifications. The last HTML specification, HTML 4.01, allowed you to use both uppercase and lowercase tags. The next generation of HTML is XHTML, which stands for Extensible Hypertext Markup Language. The first XHTML spec, XHTML 1.0, was recommended as a standard by the W3C World Wide Web Consortium in 2000.
