I’ll bet you’re thinking “Structure and Method? What is this… some kinda textbook???” Well, no, in this lesson you’ll be learning about the Structure of HTML and the Method that is used to make them.
HTML does not need to be coded with some special “HTML tool”, and you don’t even need some special program like Microsoft FrontPage or Macromedia Dreamweaver (In fact, I discourage their use until you know the ins and outs of HTML code). All that you DO need is a simple text editing program like windows built in Notepad. You’re probably thinking “Wait just one second, you’re telling me I can code up another Yahoo! with my puny little Notepad? Yes! That’s part of the beauty of HTML! In fact, this entire tutorial was created in TextPad, a simple and very cheap text editor.
When you make a Web page the first thing you need to do is gather your content. For our first page ever, we’ll be making an informative page about ourselves. For example here is mine:
Welcome to Justin’s Web Page!
Hi, My name is Justin. I built this web page because I love writing HTML code! I could do it all day long (and sometimes, i do). I am a lover of programming languages, and love to design and produce web content. Thanks for visiting my page!
Go ahead and think up a few paragraph’s like this, and meet me at the next lesson.
