INTRO TO HTML
Once you know what you want your Web site to Look like, you have
to explain that to your Web browser. To do this, you need to use
HTML. HTML stand for Hyper Text Markup Language.
An HTML file is just a page of text, like an email message or
a word processor document. In fact, you can use a word processor
to write HTML code. Or you can use pretty much anything that allows
you to type something in and save it as a text document. Web browsers
want only text, that's it. They can't deal with anything else.
An HTML file contains all the writing that will appear on your
page, plus instructions to the browser about where that writing
should go and how it should look. And if you have any pictures or
animations or sounds or whatever that you want to include, the HTML
file will tell the browser where to find them and where to put them
on your page.
