1. What is HTML?
2. What can it be used for?
3. How should I Start?
4. What are HTML Tags?
5. What else should I know?
6. Links to advance Tutorials.

Before you start makeing Websites you should know the history and background of HTML and what it stands for and what it does.

If you want to learn HTML and Code with it you need a few things.
1. A computer with a OS on it such as Windows or linux
2. Web browser software.
3. Web codeing applet such as notepad or dreamweaver or frontpage something like that.

Ok now if you have the stuff listed above now to move on and and know what HTML Stands for. HTML Stands for Hyptertext Markup Language (HTML). One person who started HTML was Tim Berners-Lee
HTML is used to make webpages. HTML is one of the easy Lang to learn and code in, withouth HTML We might not have Webpages.
ok if you did what I said on the first step and got a computer and something to code in such as notepad you can do what I say.

open up notepad or your editor.
First thing were going to learn is the Skeletal structure of and HTML Document. Type what I type in your webpage editor.

<TITLE>Document Title</TITLE>
contents of document

ok now you just created your first HTML Document/Web page now to save it.

1. open up the Save as box
2. Select File, Save as and be sure to select Text Documents as teh file type.
3. Name the File site.html
4. Choose the folder on your computer to save the html document to. ( Write down were you saved it to )
5. Click save or Ok
6. Now open up your Browser such as Internet Explorer
7. in your browser click the file, Open and click browse. and go to the folder you saved the file in and hit open (note these options may change if useing a diff OS)
8. Now your site should show up in the browser you should see printed on the screen contents of document

Now im going to go into detail on what you did to create that page.
First you need to learn what a opening and closeing tags are.

An opening Tag is an HTML that that indicates the start of and HTML Command; the text affected by the command appears after the opening tag. opening tags always begin with < and End with >, as in <HTML>

A closing Tag is an HTML Tag that indicates the end of and html command; the text affected by this command appears before the closing tag. Closing tags always begin with </ and End with >, and in </HTMLl>

Ok now that you learned those terms Im going to show you what each one of those sections you typed in that Document ment and what it did.

That tag defines That it is a html document and beginning of the document .

That tag always appears near the beginning of the html code for a page , it is used to identify the title of a page .

That tag tells that its the closeing of the head section of the page.

That tells the webbrowser that thats the start of the body of the page. anyting between this and </body> is posted on the page.


Hi, My first site

see how that works?

that tells the browser its the closeing of the body

That tells the browser is the End of the Hmtl document.


ok as you saw above you used html Tags. Well Now Ill tell you what HTML Tags are.

HTML tags are a must in html they mark up text-based documents. They instruct Web browsers how to display content. Tags indicate where a given element begins, you must Place teh appropriate tag before it. This consist of a certain abbreviation sandwiched by the less-Than (<) and Greater-Thank (>) symbols. For example as show before <html> . Not all Tags need a opening and closeing thow.


Ok now that you know the skeletal structure of a HTML document im going to show you a few Tags for HTML.

These tags are used to change the sytle of your text for each section ill put a = to show what each one looks like
<B>...</B> = Bold text
<FONT>...</FONT> = Font
<I>...</I> = italic text
<SMALL>...</SMALL> = Small text
<BIG>...</BIG> = Big text
<S>...</S> = striked text
<U>..</U> = underlined text
<CENTER>..</CENTER> = Centered text

<BASE /> = All other URLs in the document are resolved against this location
<BODY>...</BODY> = Defines its the Body of the document
<HEAD>...</HEAD> = Defines its the Head of the document
<HTML>...</HTML> = Defines its a HTML Document
<LINK /> = Defines a relationship between the current document and another document.
<META> = Should be placed in the <HEAD> Tag it provides additional information about the document.
<TITLE>...</TITLE> = Defines its the Title of the Document

<script> = places a script within the document

used to play multimedia documents on a webpage
<BGSOUND> = is used to play a background sound
<EMBED> = Embeds an object into the Web Page
<OBJECT> = A generick element used for placeing an object on a page.

Used to create HTML Frames on a webPage
<FRAME> = Defines a single frame within a <frameset>
<FRAMESET> = Defines a collection of frames or other framesets

Ok these tags can go in the body section of your page. These are Tags for linking to websites and other documents. <A> is a anchor meaning it will link to another document or web resource. it can also serve to label a fragment within a document. For example to link to jinx you could try <A HREF="http://www.jinx.com">Jinx</A>
the section between > < is the comment or text part that will show up on a page. for example >Jinx< with Jinx put in it will print out Jinx and if you click that it will work as a link.

<A NAME="fragmentname">TEXT</A>
<A HREF="fragmentname">TEXT</A>

This is used if you would like to make a bulleted list. YOu know the thing with the dots then your sentance or what ever to the right of the dots. Each one enters on a new line.

<LI>Your text
<LI>Your text
<LI>Your text

When that is made it should print out like this
  • Your Text
    Your Text
    Your Text
Ok A numbered list is basicly what it sounds like, A numbered list from 1- to what your LI stop at for each one is a number starting at one to what ever. Each one enters on a new line.

<LI>Your Text
<LI>Your Text
<LI>Your Text

When that is made it should print out like this but instead of the dots it would be in numbers in order
  • Your Text
    Your Text
    Your Text
Tables are meant to display data in a tabular format. Tables use to be used for The page layout purposes before HTML 4 came out. Now this is being Discourage by the W3C

<TABLE>...</TABLE> = Creates a table
<TBODY>...</TBODY> = Defines the Table body
<TD>...</TD> = Defines a cell's contents
<TFOOT>...</TFOOT> = Defines the Table footer
<TH>...</TH> = Defines the cell contents of the table header.
<TR>...</TR> - Defines a row of table cells

EX: Here is an example of a Table setup


frames create panels in the web browser window that are used to display content from different source documents; Fames also allow you to build a web page composed of serveral Web Pages.

<FRAME /> = Defines a frame
<FRAMESET>...</FRAMESET> = Defines the layout of frames within a window
<IFRAME>...</IFRAME> = creates a inline frame
<NOFRAME>...</NOFRAME> = Alternative content when frames are not supported

EX: of Inline Frames

<IFRAME HEIGHT=120 widht=250 SCROLLING=yes SRC=http://www.mixfevers.com name=test></IFRAME>

Does just what the Tag says This tag Does not print the comment out on the webpage, but you can view it when looking at the source code.

Ok I updated a few things on it. And sorry to the one guy that got his topic erased along with mine. Because of something I did not know was a rule and was a hidden rule in a section I have not gone to until I started really…really looking for it.

Go to File > Save As > change to "All Files" > type "index.html". Open that file with Internet Explorer.

If you'd like to learn more HTML, google is your friend.

But if you really want to expand your abilities, I recommend leaning a scripting language such as JavaScript, which can be used in web pages. HTML is very "static" - really, all it does is format how the page should be displayed. That's all it is designed to do. If you want any sort of user interaction, you need to learn a scripting language, such as JavaScript.

CSS is also good to know. CSS allows you to control the style, the look and feel, of your web site. To see its power in action, visit this page: http://www.csszengarden.com/. There is a menu on the right side which lists several designs. Click on them, and observe that the style of the page changes drastically in every design, but the content stays the same. As they say, "The code remains the same, the only thing that has changed is the external .css file". Basically, instead of defining the style in line with the rest of the HTML, you define it elsewhere so that changing it is a snap. Depending on who you are and how much experience you have, this may not sound like much; but from a programmer's perspective, this is pretty huge.

This is nicely done. Misses some, but hence the NEWBIES in the title I guess. I found a good tutorial that helped me when I started... http://werbach.com/barebones/download.html It gives you nearly every tag there is. Also to anyone getting into HTML you should also look into CSS.

Well, the tutorials section is mostly for tutorials. The other sections are not specific to tutorials and are full of questions on many subjects.
