When you’re writing a HTML document, there is a structure to follow. You can create these documents using a simple text editor such as Notepad or Notepad++
The HTML document looks like this…
This looks pretty complicated at first glance. But let’s break it down…
<!DOCTYPE HTML> Very simple, this is just what the document type is, it’s a html document.
<HTML></HTML> This is an open HTML tag, this surrounds the document, it’s all it does. It goes at the top and at the bottom.
<HEAD></HEAD> Here you would put all of your meta data, java or styling into the web page. Don’t worry, we’ll come to those later.
<TITLE></TITLE> This is the title of the page, this is what would appear at the top of your browser window.
<BODY></BODY> This is the actual content of the document.
Once you save this, be sure to save it with a .html suffix, so for example…. “something.html”
