Gustavo Villada’s First Web Project
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 stands for
Hypertext Markup Language.
HTML is the code used for creating Web pages for the World Wide
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.
- Head: This provides information about the Web Page.
- Title: Defines the title of the Web site on the title bar.
- !--:Allows you to type a comment in the Web page.
- html: Defines to the browser that the page is a Web page.
- body: Defines to the browser the body of the Web page; this is the information that appears in the browser window (the
actual Web page).
- h1: Defines the headings on the Web page. These are used as titles or sub-titles.
- Center: Centers the text.
- hr: Defines a horizontal line.
- h2: Defines the headings on the Web page. These are used as titles or sub-titles.
- p: Defines a paragraph; this is used to create a blank line between paragraphs.
- em: Defines emphasized text; this italicizes the text.
- Strong: Defines bolded text.
- ul: Defines an "unordered list"; this is a bulleted list.
- ol: Defines an "ordered list"; this is a numbered 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.
- Open Notepad; you need a text editor.
- Save the Web Page.
- Create a root folder; this folder contains all the files needed for the Web page or site.
- Save the Web page as: index.htm
- Create the Web page using XHTML tags.
- Save the page each time yo add or correct something on it.
- Open the browser to view the page.
- Click File > Open File.
- Find your Web page.
- 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.
- table. This tag tells the browser to start the table.
- tr. This tag tells the browser to start a table row.
- td. This tag is table data and is a individual cell.
|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
