Warp, web, weft, and woof are terms from weaving: the threads or yarns that run lengthwise on the loom are called the warp; the crosswise threads or yarns are called the woof or weft. The web is the name given the completed woven fabric, and it also has wide figurative use: What a tangled web of circumstance you’ve woven. All these are Standard.
