Berners-Lee wrote a proposal of the WWW at CERN in 1989. The following year, Belgian systems engineer Robert Cailliau helped to refine the proposal further. In November 1990, they published a formal proposal that showed principal concepts and defined specific terms behind the web.

The project described a hypertext named WorldWideWeb, where a web of hypertext documents could be explored by browsers.
