First when using HTML you need to declare the HTML document to do this open up Notepad (I would suggest Notepad++) and type these two tags on the page:
<html> </html>--Declares HTML document.
The beginning of an HTML document always starts with
<html>. Whenever you end an HTML document you must use
</html>. When you use the "/" key your ending what ever action you declared to use. Everything you put into the HTML document must be in between those tags.
The golden rule when using HTML 4.0 is that any coding you use is all lowercase if you don't use lowercase the website won't function correctly. After adding one tag press the "Enter" key then add the ending tags.
Now you're going to want to make the body of the web page, to do that do this:
<body> </body>--Creates the web page so you can add text, pictures, videos, etc.
Look for my next tutorial which will show you how to add text and how to format it.
