Bandwidth

The maximum amount of data which can be carried at a given time by your internet connection.

BinHex
A protocol for sending general files as e-mail messages, which overcomes the problem that e-mail systems were originally designed for handling text data only.

Bitmap
A
type of graphic file used to save a digital image containing a colour value for each pixel in a picture. It is a simpler format than a JPEG or GIF.

Bleed
The printed area which extends off the trimmed area. It is not possible to print all the way to the edge of the paper sheet. To achieve this effect it is necessary to print a larger area than is required and then trim the paper down. Typically a designer would allow an extra 3mm of bleed to colour and image areas to allow for a little leeway when trimming.

Blind Embossing
A type of embossing where no ink is used. The design or text is only visible as a raised area on the paper.

Bookmark
A website you wish to return to can be made a 'bookmark' or a 'favourite'. Browsers allow you to add the webpage you are currently looking at to a list of pages which is kept for you between Internet sessions. When you wish to return to a page, you can go in one click. Be aware certain 'dynamic' web pages contain content that has been called for during a particular session and may not be viewable on your return as a fresh visitor.

Boolean Search
A Boolean search is one formed by joining simple terms in a logical way with "AND", "OR" and "NOT". Boolean terms can also be expressed in symbols like "-" instead of "minus" or "+" instead of "plus".

Browser
A browser is a program you use to view webpages and 'browse' websites (eg Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator).

Bug
A programming error that causes a program or computer system to perform erratically, produce incorrect results, or crash.
