It mainly consists of tags. An open tag must be closed(except for some tags like <BR>)
Tags always begin with a " < " sign and end with a " >" sign.
To do HTML coding, you have to open Notepad. Go to Accessories, then Notepad. You can also do HTML coding in Microsoft FrontPage which is available at the http://www.microsoft.com/frontpage website.
Another thing I want to tell you:
After you finish your coding on a page, save it in a directory or disk or anywhere you wish to.
Suppose you have saved a file named html, give it the extension ".htm".
While saving, don't use the option "save". Use "save as". It doesn't make any difference at all whether you give the extension as ".htm" or ".html".
After saving the file in, say, C:\ drive, open your browser, type the following in the address bar:
Here is a typical HTML document:
My first webpage
This is the body of document
You can save the above file as html.htm in your C:\ drive and run it to see how this simple document will work in a browser. The browser should, under normal circumstances, show the page you have created and named as html.htm.
