HTML Tutorial - Introduction

To start off I will answer a few questions.

What is a web page?

A web page is what you are looking at right now ;o) Web pages are just computer documents that you can make. They are all made out of a computer language called HTML and that leads me into my next question.

What is HTML?

HTML is a simple computer markup language that all web pages are made out of. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. If you want to see what it looks like you can go to any web page and click on the View menu. Then click on Source and that is what that web page is made out of. Looking at HTML the first time may look like Greek to you but that is what this tutorial is for. Once you get done with it you should be able to see what some of that mess means.

Is HTML hard to learn?

No it really isn't. It may seem really complicated but it is really simple if you're using the right tools or try to start learning in groups.

What do I need to make a web page?

All you need is an internet connection and a basic text editor like Notepad or Simple Text for Macs. You don't need any expensive Frontpage software. Actually for now don't use it. It will only mess you up.

What will I learn in this tutorial?

You will learn the basics of HTML markup like how to link to other web pages and how to put images on your web page. You will be able to make lists and lots more.

What are you waiting for. Lets make your first web page!
