WHAT IS AN HTML PAGE?


HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. An HTML page is a text file that contains special characters called markup tags. The tags describe how the page should be displayed when you view it via a Browser such as Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer.

HTML works in a very simple, very logical, format. It reads like you do, top to bottom, left to right. That's important to remember. HTML is written with TEXT. What you use to set certain sections apart as bigger text, smaller text, bold text, underlined text, is a series of tags.

WHAT IS A TAG?

Think of tags as commands. Let's say you want a line of text to be bold. You will put a tag at the exact point you want the bold lettering to start and another tag where you want the bold lettering to stop. If you want just a word to be italic, you will place a start italic tag at the beginning of the word and an end italic tag at the end of the word. For your convenience a list of all the tags that you will need for this course can be found in “Appendix_1.pdf”.

Create an HTML Page

You don’t need to be connected to the Internet to create or view HTML pages. You don’t even need complex software. All that you require to create HTML pages is a simple text editor such as Notepad if you are using a windows based computer or Simpletext if you are using an Apple computer.

Start Notepad (or Simpletext) and type the following:

<html>

<head>

<title>My first web page</title>

</head>

<body>

Hello World!

</body>

</html>

The Structure of Tags

Tags are not case sensitive <em> means the same as <EM>. However, lowercase is the standard that has been adopted for future versions of HTML (called XHTML). Some Tags have attributes

For example <table border=”1”>.

Here border=”1” is the attribute of the <table> tag and in this case the browser will create a table with a border 1 pixel wide.

Tags can have one or more attributes. Here are some other examples of tags and attributes:

<p align=”left>


Align the text in this paragraph to the left.

<td valign=”top” width=”50%”>


Make a table cell 50 percent as wide as the table wide and align its contents to the top of the cell.

<font color=”#999999”>


Make the following text this colour.

As we progress in the course we will explore these and more.
