A mechanism for preventing users of Microsoft Internet Explorer from viewing Web sites that contain objectionable language, violence, nudity, or sexually explicit content. These ratings are configured on the Web server on a site-by-site basis.
Ratings for each category have been established at four levels of acceptable use. The Webmaster who creates the site can then include information about the levels of objectionable language, violence, nudity, or sexually explicit content present on their site.
Content ratings are defined by the Recreational Software Advisory Council (RSAC). The user can configure his or her browser to a specified accessibility level for each type of content by using the Content Advisor feature of Internet Explorer.
