(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The trident is the alchemical sign for water, from its association with Poseidon, Greek god of the sea and creator of waters. Son of Kronos and Rhea, and brother of Zeus, Poseidon split the earth with his trident, earning himself the title "Earth Shaker," according to Homer.

In India, Shiva was trident-bearer to Kali. Originally thought of as a triple phallus, the trident has come to be associated with Satan's pitchfork in the Christian tradition.

In Ceremonial Magic, a necromantic trident is fashioned of hazel wood. The old grimoires state that it should be cut at the full moon, from a tree that has never borne fruit, and with a knife whose blade has not previously been used. The shaft of the Trident is then engraved with the magic words "Tetragammaton" and "Jehova."

Charles Ploix (La Nature et les Dieux) associates the trident with the wand used in water witching. Mircea Eliade suggests that the trident was originally a representation of the teeth of sea monsters, aligning it with Poseidon's world and with the three-headed Cerberus.

browser engine

The underlying software that turns HTML pages into the Web page the user sees. A browser engine includes the programming interface (API) and the rendering engine, which converts HTML and JavaScript into text and images for the screen and printer. Also called a "layout engine," a browser engine is also used by email programs that support HTML (most do), as well as other applications that render Web content. Following is a sampling of popular browsers. See API, HTML, JavaScript, HTML email and render.

browser rendering engine

Software that renders HTML pages (Web pages). A browser rendering engine turns content coded in HTML into the text and images for the screen and printer. Also called a "layout engine," a rendering engine is used by Web browsers, email programs (for HTML email) and other applications that render HTML content. Following is a sampling of popular browsers and their rendering engines. See HTML, HTML email and render.
