When building a site, one of the most important tasks that you perform is link creation, but HyperText Markup Language (HTML) offers a heap of features beyond links. HTML documents describe the hypertext and contain much of the content users explore while visiting the Web, connecting them to other resources including presentation style, scripts,images, video, sound, and much more. As you will see, a key part of working with HTML is knowing when to let other technologies (and sometimes people) do their work.
The use of a web browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari) is to read HTML documents and display them.The browser does not display the HTML tags.
Creating HTML files in NotePad
- Open NotePad: Start --> Programs --> Accesories --> NotePad.
- NotePad should launch with a new document open.
- From the File pull-down menu, Select "Save As," save the file to the Desktop, and name the file using the ".html" extension (e.g., "myfile.html").
- You must be sure to save the file with the ".html" extension because NotePad will otherwise add the ".txt" extension which will confuse most Web browsers.
- Open the saved HTML file in your desired browser (double click on the file, or right-click - and choose "Open with").
