HTML, XHTML, XML, RDF, C++, C, vB, MS, GNU, PPPoE, SCSI, DLL, IDE, EIDE, PHP, ASP, JSP, MSN, CMD, SQL, mySQL, PostgresSQL, PCI, DNS, TCP, IP, IE, FF, CSS, DOM, JS, HTTP, WWW, CAB, ZIP, DOC, XLS, OWL, JPG, GIF, PNG, JPEG, MNG, JNG, ISP, P3P, W3C, SOAP, XML-RPC, URL, XSL, XSLT, XSL-FO, IETF, RSS, PEAR, CPAN, BBS, FTP, SCP, SSH, SFTP, HTTPD, IIS, PWS, PY, SSI, FSF, GPL, LGPL, CC, WCAG, WYSIWYG, IRC, CGI, CMS, DTD, XMLNS, ASP, ASP.NET, MSDN, PDF, XML-RPC, XP, RAM, ROM, MBR, DHTML, CFM, MP3
