Create your own HTML pages the old fashioned way

What is HTML? Well, it stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. Basically, it's a standard set of tags (or symbols / markups / commands) that you can use primarily to create world wide web pages and many other types of documents such as Windows HELP files, device control interfaces, etc.

Do I have to have a fancy HTML editor? No; matter of fact, you can instantly create your own HTML page just by using your favorite text editor (such as "Notepad" in Windows). Of course, having a HTML editor would help since these days most of them will let you create HTML documents without knowing any HTML commands.

So, feel like taking the challenge of creating possibly your first HTML document without using any fancy HTML editors? Well, good for you. Here's how to do it...

  • Create a blank [text] document using your favorite text editor (or word processor). For example, let's say you want to use Windows "Notepad." All you have to do is run Notepad and it will open with a blank page.
  • Type in the following in your blank document:
    <TITLE>Hello, World!</TITLE>
    Hello HTML world, here I come...
  • Save the document as HELLO.HTM (for example)
  • Open your favorite browser and select it's "Open File" feature (usually located in the "File" menu)
  • Open your HTML document, HELLO.HTM

That's it! You just created a HTML file the old fashioned way. Now you can browse the web to find your favorite place to learn new HTML commands! Following link maybe a good starting point:
