What is HTML?

Learn HTML
A simple lessons on how to make a Web Page. You'll be happy to learn that it's really pretty simple. The basic idea is this... A web page is nothing more than a file, a HTML file to be exact. It's called HTML because web page documents have the file extension .html or .htm. HTML stands for Hyper Text Mark-up Language.

HTML is very easy to learn ! You will enjoy it !

Let's start ! You need a simple word processor such as NotePad or WordPad. These simple word processors are also called text editors and are ideal for creating web pages.
Open a Notepad and let start coding

<html>
</html>

Each one of those is called a tag. There is a starting tag and a closing tag. To make a closing tag just add a</> to the starting tag. Most, but not all tags have a closing tag.The first tag in your HTML document is <html>. This tag tells your browser that this is the start of an HTML document. The last tag in your document is </html>. This tag tells your browser that this is the end of the HTML document. Different tags are interpreted different ways by the browser. So let's start our class...

Every HTML document needs a pair of head tags. The text between the <head> tag and the </head> tag is header information. Header information is not displayed in the browser window except title tag which is used to display the title of the webpage you are creating in next session we will see this.

<html>
<head>
</head>
</html>

The text between the <title> tags is the title of your document. The title is displayed in your browser's caption.

<html>
<head>
<title>My First Learning Webpage</title>
</head>
</html>

Next is the body tag which is used to execute or show up what is present inside the body tag, so simply we can say it as, it is a holder of the contents of text document or information, which is used to display in the web Browser.

<html>
<head>
<title>My First Learning Webpage</title>
</head>
<body>
All your content goes here,
</body>
</html>

Give your web page a title, and put some lines in the bodytag.

<html>
<head>
<title>My First Learning Webpage</title>
</head>
<body>
Now i undestand what is HTML and how to create a simple html page with title and put some information in the body tag.
</body>
</html>

Now save it as an HTML file, you can use either the .htm or the .html extension in a new folder. The suffix is an extension to the name and declares the kind of document that it is. In HTML, the suffix is either ".htm" or ".html". Tells the browser you are working with HTML files.

You must use ".htm" if you are not running Windows 95 or higher. Again, this is no longer an issue and so you can use either .htm or .html for the file extension. So if "homepage" is the name of the HTML document (your web page), you can have either homepage.htm or homepage.html, but it is better to give your home page [i.e., first page of your website]name as index.html we will discuss why u should give "index.html" for the first page in our training class later on.

Note : Dont use File name in Capital letters and dont use space " " between the file names
