Your first Web Page can be a simple affair that you can build rather quickly.
These are some of the things you need to know to get started. You use your Notepad editor for text files. Use the same program application to save a file and have it turn out as a Web Page but when you save it make the ending of the file name .htm or .html, that's the first thing. The second thing is the code that you add to your text file that lets the browser program on your computer to do the work are called TAGS. A more formal name for TAG is ELEMENT, eg. 'The element <X> can contain the following attributes; ... '.
When the browser program is asked to look at a file and
sees the .htm or .html at the end of the file name instead of the .txt / .text
it starts to look for TAGS. The parts and structure of a HTML
Everything you put in the web page must be in one of three
The Title tags are used to give your page a name that
shows up at the top of your monitor screen, <title> and </title>,
and are placed in the head, What you put between the TITLE tags you will
see as the page label in the blue bar at the top of the browser. In the
BODY you can place Lists, Text and Headers and all the other stuff you
want people to see. Lets talk about lists first only because I am going to use lists to show
you things and I will explain how to make the lists later..
Here is the code that makes the above list:
There are a few more such as tags for emphasis
and strong that use <EM>, </EM> and <STRONG>,
</STRONG>. HTML code from the beginning offered a way to render tabular
data and the TAGS used to build the 'Table' became very popular to help
frame the entire page display, as this page is framed. I set the border value
to "0" which is why you do not see it.
add this </tr>, <tr> to close one row and start another and get this
The TAGS<P> and </P> will separate paragraphs apart,
There is a TAG <HR> that can set a horizontal rule on the page.
