HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is a language for specifying how text and graphics appear on a web page. When you visit a web site (e.g. (HTML). HTML is the building block for web pages. You will learn to use HTML to author an HTML file you just created - teshimaryokan.info - select it and click Open. Introduction. • In this workshop, we will be learning about the languages of the internet: • HTML. – We will spend most of our vme becoming familiar with HTML.
I started to get myself into webpage building. Hi Sara, Thanks for the kind words. It will also detect when you open a new tag and automatically close it to avoid you having a buggy code and as a result reducing how much typing you have to do. Keep in mind that writing in HTML is very different from writing in pure text. Tom Wins September 24, at Thanks a ton!
Using bold: Using italics: Underlining text: As a result, it is recommended to use CSS to indicate text that should be underlined. Using subscript: Using superscript: For other tags that can be used to format, you might want to take a look at the glossary at the end of this resource where we have included plenty of relevant HTML tags. Sooner or later you will have to create lists.
Lists could be ordered i. Got the gist? The web is one massively interconnected network of pages. If you create a website — whether internally or externally, or both — you will have to link to other pages. A link to an internal page on your website, or to an external page on the web, is called a hyperlink.
While people usually link a text, any HTML element — an image, for example — can be linked. To create a hyperlink, this: Now, assume you are linking to a local file in which you have all your HTML pages in the same folder. Just add the file path.
For example, if linking to a file titled about-page. If the HTML file you want to link to is local but in a folder different from the main folder, you simply specify the file path. You might want to specify how you want the link to be opened e. You will use target attribute for that. There are other attributes that can be used to communicate different ways a link should be opened: Going beyond the basics, we could also use other attributes to better customize the image.
As you get deeper into HTML, you will want to learn various ways to present information in a more organized way. One such way is through the use of tables. For organizing, we can add some styling to the code. In this case, we are increasing the width: You might want to go more advanced and use borders, set horizontal or vertical alignment for the content of the table, introduce dividers, padding, etc.
However, you will need to learn some CSS to do stuff like this. There are different types of quotations, and these quotations are represented by different elements. This comes out as: This is a sample. When doing any form of coding, it is important to learn how to include comments in your code.
Comments are used to make your code more organized.
You can include a reminder to yourself or a note to others to make things easier. Initially, it might not seem important, but when you start writing hundreds or thousands of lines of code, and when things seem to start to get complicated, comments will come in handy. Remember that they can be seen in the source code. Comments can also be used anywhere in the code.
You can include a comment by opening a bracket, including a double hyphen, adding your comment, including another double hyphen and then closing your bracket. It is also worth noting that, especially when debugging, you can comment out lines of code. This way, the code remains in the document but does not function since you have commented it. In this scenario, as far as the browser is concerned, we have nothing.
Sooner or later, you will want to use colors to indicate certain elements of your HTML document. This can be done in three main ways: Using color in HTML is usually done with the style attribute.
We are instructing the text to be highlighted in the green color using the RGB value. Using the HSL value, we asked that the text is highlighted in the yellow color.
Obviously, this is only feasible for texts for which you know the color names and can be difficult for certain color shades that can be easily done with the HEX code or RGB value. In essence, you can use it to display another website or content from another web page inside the current one. With the above code, I am telling the browser to display the content of https: Iframes can be used to display a website, video, images or any other form of content.
You can further customize to specify certain values, e. Understanding how fonts work is essential to creating effective HTML documents. For one, fonts make it easy to set the size of your text. It is important to note that the range of accepted font sizes is 1 to 7. Anything above 7 will automatically adjust to font size 7. The default font size is 3. Do you prefer Verdana instead of Times New Romans? This is how you set it: You can simply change the font face value to indicate any font you want to use.
It is important to note that people will only be able to see your text displayed in the font you specify if they have that font installed on their computer.
If not, the default font face — usually Times New Roman — will be displayed. It might help to include as many alternate font faces as you can. This is done with the use of the comma. We instructed the browser to show the text in Verdana. If Verdana is not available, instead of reverting to the default Times New Romans, it can show Helvetica, or Arial if Helvetica is not available or Comic Sans if Arial is not available either. In conclusion, HTML is more complicated than what you have in this guide.
Do not give up hope — if you can grasp the basic concepts in this guide, you are up to a good start. This is basic HTML tutorial. You can be sure that it will take significantly more effort — and a lot of development time often using a combination of languages — to create an outstanding website.
With WordPress, which we have covered in great details in our guide on creating a website , you can have a remarkable website ready in minutes. Your email address will not be published.

Hello, Robert, Your tutorial is excellent and I needed a refresher course. Our local Knife and Fork Club is in need of a very small web presence, and I have created six pages of information and have purchased a domain name.
What I am looking for is just a simple web hosting service that I can upload these six, HTML files along with four gif files to promote the club. All of the files would be in one folder and the web hosting service would just point to the domain name and index. Suggestions or ideas will be most welcomed. Regards, David. I used WordPress using this guide here: Hi Robert, I find this article very crucial in comparison to all that have ever read to guide me build my website.
FREE domain names do not exist. However, if you sign up with a hosting, many of them offer free lifetime domain names. Thanks Robert. Very useful. But I do have a question. On the surface, it seems like using the tag is more trouble.

Hello Robert What can I do so that my html form can send me an email each time a visitor fills in the form? I am finishing up with a degree in web development next semester and was contemplating creating websites for small companies.
In your opinion what is a better route for creating modern websites for companies. Would love to hear your opinion on the topic. Dont worry Tom, there was a mistake in step 4 but I did have someone to help me through that. I am a complete novice and blonde and if I did not have someone to help me though this I would be in your shoes. However, once you start understanding what you need to do it becomes clearer. Do not give up!!! All will be revealed eventually.
I was wondering if you could help. Thanks so much for this article. I did have a question about the zip code submit on the signup page. Could you use the pattern attribute?
I would prefer learning from you rather than reading boring traditional texts written by old monks. I want to build a website using WordPress. Thanks again! Just create two different root folders. Thank you for this great guide, I was wondering, can you make an advanced html guide?
Thank you so much for writing this out. By the way, thank you for taking the time to put this together. I needed to get familiar with sections and articles, and this tutorial was very helpful.

So instead of writing two times, write one. I just have a short question: I have bought myself a domain-name bjornsteck. You can ask this information from your hosting support. If you want to update it everyday you need a CMS. Otherwise you can do whatever you want.
If you want to learn the basics of web development, try messing around with HTML5. I started to get myself into webpage building. Your tutorials help a lot! My question regarding it, is how can I make it visitable by people?
Thanks for the kind words. Hi Robert, how to upload? Even I have all that tutorial and all I need is to upload. Hi Robert, Thanks for putting together these pages — they are great, and just what I need to get going on my project. I have coding experience, but not recent. Many thanks, Liz. Thanks for your comment. Hi Robert, Thanks for your tutorials.
There was a background wallpaper, and the text seemed to be on a transparent ground, so you could scroll the text over the top of the wallpaper. How is that done? Would love to use it on a website. Thanks, Dianne. Robert Mening Last updated: Sep 10, Would you like to learn some HTML?
