In this paper, we study the properties of prime ideals in semirings
of continuous functions with values in the unit interval $[0,1]$ on topological
spaces.
We describe maximal and pure ideals of such semirings.
We study homomorphisms of semirings of continuous $[0,1]$-valued functions.
In terms of semirings of functions we characterize some properties of
compacta.
We show that the theory of ideals in these semirings differs from the
case of rings of continuous functions.
