Open Notepad.

HTML (hypertext markup language) uses tags. Tags are basically some text inside of <ANGLE
brackets>You will use a variety of tags to create your webpage. There are also "end tags" which look like </TEXT>.

The first tag of a webpage is usually the html <html>.

The next tag is the <head> tag.

On the next line after your tag, put <title> tag which tells the browser what to put at the top of the window

write website name after <title> tag

close your title tag using closing tag </title>

now close head tag using closing tag </head>

next comes body tag <body>

Between the two body tags goes the content of your webpage, what the user sees.

now add some headings in heading tags like <h1></h1> <h2></h2> <h3></h3> <h4></h4> <h5></h5> <h6></h6>

What really makes a website interesting is pictures. Even with formatting, who wants to look at endless words? Use the <IMG> tag to do this. But, like the body tag, it needs some extra information. An img tag might look like this: <IMG alt="dog" src="/dog.jpg" width=200 height=200> The src (source) is what the picture is called. The width and height are the width and height of the picture in pixels. There is no closing for <img> tag.

Almost done! You want your visitors to be able to see more than just one page. To create links, use: <A href="/otherpage.html">Another page</A> The text in between the tags is what the user clicks on to get to the next page, and the href part is where their click takes them. Using a tags you can let your users move effortlessly around your website

To finish up, you need to end your body with </body> , and entire webpage with </html> tag
