The easy way to making a Website using HTML code

Learning basic HTML code is not that hard
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language the fundamental programming language of the web.
This page explains basic code for html tags for building HyperText Markup websites
Without getting to technical ! For the beginner and first time webmasters.

Some Html code basic rules :
Lower case is recommended as more advanced page design is now all lower case.
  • Html does not care about letter case (capital and lower case letters)

  • For example the tag for a table row can be written <TR>and <tr> or <Tr>
    and will be treated the same way when viewed in web browsers
    File names are an exception PICTURE.jpg is not the same as picture.JPG

  • Html uses start tags and end tags

  • Each tag is enclosed with brackets the start tag <>and the end tag which includes a slash </>
    Example : <html> everything here between these two tags is your web page </html>
    <html> is the first tag on all html coded web pages and
    </html> is the last tag on all html web pages

  • There are keys on your keyboard you cannot type into text areas on your pages

  • These are the html special characters used for html code.
    You use them for the tag code but you cannot type them into your html page code as text.
    Examples : Brackets < >  and quotation marks "  are used for html code.
    These characters have to be coded to be used as normal text.
    double quotation marks on your page code would be coded &quot;
    Periods are not special characters.

  • Mistakes can't hurt anything or break your computer

  • The worst thing is your page won't look the way you want it too.
    So have fun and make yourself a web site !
