Halal rules

In Marseille and around, and I've seen also in Paris, we can find Halal slaughterhouse, and supermarkets, for the muslims who prefer following the Coran food rules.
I was wondering, what is Halal in detail ?
Halal rules (condensed, now...post comments if you know better, thanks)
- Muslims should only eat Coran authorized food.
- They should know the required correct food - HALAL - in opposition with the incorrect one - HARAM.
Reprobate: Pork, alcool, animal fat, meat not one of the declared halal species, meat that has not been slaughtered in the manner prescribed by the shari?a, the muslim law.
Ritual is : the slaghter man must be muslim, head turn to the Mecque, kills the animal by slicing open the jugular veins at the neck, resulting in quick blood loss while saying the words :
" Bismillah Arrahman Arrahim Allahou Akbar" . If the ritual is not respected, the meat is prohibited to consumption.
