The One Minute HTML PrimerAn HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) file, is basically just an ASCII text file with funny little codes in it.
The funny little codes are created by surrounding certain "code" words and phrases
with angle brackets, " < > ". The bracketed codes are called:
- "HTML codes" or
- "HTML tags"
To create a very basic HTML document:
- Open some sort of editor or word processor that can save a document as ASCII text.
<TITLE> (Type a title here.) </TITLE>
(Copy and paste - or type -
the text you want the browser to display.
Place a <P> tag between paragraphs.)
- Save the document with an .html extension.
- Normally an ASCII text file would be any file with a .TXT extension.
To save any .TXT
file as an HTML file, just change the file extension to either ".HTM" or ".HTML"
- The title will be not be displayed with the rest of the document in the browser.
Also, type the word "TITLE" in all caps so that search engine robots can easily read it and add your page to their databases.
