The Basics of HTML
By Ben Sinclair - 2003-01-04 Page:  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Getting Started


OK, now let's get started with your first Webpage.

First open up your HTML Editor or Notepad.

Here is an example of a basic HTML Document Structure...

<html>
<head>
<title>This is Ben's Web page</title>
</head>
<body>Body goes here</body>
</html>


Note: It doesn't really matter how you set out your html page (I just like to be neat).

The title tag is seen at the top of your page above File, Edit, View etc.



Most of your information goes in the body tag.



The Heading Tag


One of the tags that you can use in the body is called a heading tag.

The first one is called <H1>. This makes your font really big like this:

This is heading 1



The last one is called <H6>. This makes your font really small like this:

This is heading 6


Every heading gets smaller and smaller but there are only 6 of them.



Assignment #1


Today's assignment is to create a basic HTML structure. In the title write 'My first HTML page' and in the body between <h1> and </h1> 'I love HTML!!'
