Introduction to Internet Ratings

The Platform for Internet Content Selection (PICS) is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) group chartered to define a standard for the creation of rating systems and rating information. PICS is the open W3C standard for solving the problem of minors accessing adult content on the Internet. Microsoft views PICS as the best direction for solving these problems. This document describes how to support ratings on the Internet Explorer platform. It is written for HTML authors who want to support PICS ratings on their site, and also for programmers who are developing Web authoring or viewing tools and applications.
