INTRODUCTION TO HTML

INTRODUCTION TO HTML

HTML, which stands for Hypertext Markup Language, is the standard markup language used to create web pages.

HTML consists of HTML elements, which define the different parts of the document. The web developer uses HTML tags to specify which elements go on a given page. For example, you can use HTML tags to specify headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, images and much more.

WHAT DO I NEED TO CREATE HTML?

You don’t need any special equipment or software to create HTML. In fact, you probably already have everything you need. Here is what you need:

Computer

This is probably an obvious one. Tablets should be fine too, and maybe even your smartphone.

HTML EDITOR

An HTML editor is an application that helps you create HTML pages.

While you can certainly create HTML documents using a simple text editor, an HTML editor will make your life easier especially if you plan to write a lot of code.

HTML editors usually highlight your code so that it’s easier to read, and they will typically have an autocomplete feature that picks up on what you’re typing, and makes valid HTML suggestions.

FREE HTML EDITORS

Many HTML editors cost money, but there are also a few free ones around. Examples include:

  • Visual Studio Code
  • Brackets
  • Sublime
  • SeaMonkey
  • NotePad++

DO I NEED TO BE ONLINE?

No, you do not need to be online to create web pages. You can create web pages on your local machine. You only need to go online when you want to publish your web page to the web (this bit comes later).
