Creating a Web Page Using HTMLTags.

This section explains HTML and what it is used for.

This is my first atempt at creating a Web page using HTML.

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. HTML is the code used for creating Web pages for the World Wide Web.

HTML allows us to create a Web document that is transformed into a Web page bye a browser such as Mozilla Firefox.

HTML was invented in 1989 along with the World Wide Web by Tim Berners-Lee.


This section describes the tags I have learned so far

The new tags I am learning in this section is OL or Ordered list and Unordered list.

In this next section I will learn to use an ordered list. For example, here are the steps needed to create a Web page with XHTML.

  1. Open Notepad; you need a text editor.
  2. Save the Web Page.
  3. Create a root folder; this folder contains all the files needed for the Web page or site.
  4. Save the Web page as: index.htm
  5. Create the Web page using XHTML tags.
  6. Save the page each time yo add or correct something on it.
  7. Open the browser to view the page.
  8. Click File > Open File.
  9. Find your Web page.
  10. Open it an see how it looks!

Hyperlinks: The reason the World Wide Web was invented.

Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web and XHTML to share information between scientist on different computer system. He created Web pages that have hyperlinks to connect them.

The tag for a hyperlink is, or anchor.

Here is an example for creating a hyperlink.

Tag for inserting Image: img src

Inserting a image can be easy, only if we place the image in the right location where the browser can find it.

Here is the first image. It is of Mt. Everest.

Tags for Creating a Table

The following tags are used for creating tables; we will be using tables a lot in creating our Web pages. We use tables to layout the page; it is used to design the Web Page. We also use tables to place objects on the browser; for example, we use a table to place our images.

Row 1, Cell 1 Row 1, Cell 2 Row 1, Cell 3
Row 2, Cell 1 Row 2, Cell 2 Row 2, Cell 3
Row 3, Cell 1 Row 3, Cell 2 Row 3, Cell 3
