Introduction to HTML
What is HTML?
HTML, which stands for Hyper Text Markup Language, is a file which contains markup tags. The markup tags tell web browsers how to display the file (web page).
An HTML file has to have an ".htm" or ".html" extension "index.htm".
If you want to really learn HTML, I suggest you open and use a text editor such as Notepad to create and update your web pages. You can use HTML editors such Dreamweaver or Microsoft FrontPage, however, once you know and are comfortable with the HTML code.
One good way to help you learn HTML is to view the source code of the web page.
