A web page is created using a language called, Hypertext Markup Language, better known as HTML Code. You can write your own coding within a plain text editor, such as Note Pad, or use an HTML editor, which will write the code for you.
HTML codes, also referred to as HTML tags, are enclosed by the lesser than (<) and greater than (>) brackets and may be written in capital or lower case letters.
The opening bracket is followed by an element, which is a browser command, and ends with the closing bracket.
An element may also be followed by attributes, which are words describing the properties of the element, and further instruct the browser.
Attributes are only contained in the opening HTML tags to the right of the element and are separated by a space and followed by an equal (=) sign.
The value follows the equal sign and is enclosed in quotes.
Here is some code that will display an actual Web Page
<title>Your Page Title</title>
This area will contain everything that will be visible through a web browser, such as text and graphics. All of the information will be HTML coded.
For a complete list of HTML codes, tags and examples, see HTML Tags/Codes/Web Page Design.
