HTML = Hyper Text Markup Language
It is the language that is used to display webpages on internet.
(almost) every page you see in your browser in HTML.
Do a "view source" in your browser, and you will look at HTML.

The simplest form of HTML tells the browser how to display text:
text between "<B>" and "</B>" will show als bold. "<P>" is paragraph.

Look at www.htmlhelp.com is you want to know more.

So, you want to make a Web Page!
3.0 by Joe Barta PROFESSIONAL WEB DESIGN
Also available: Table Tutor, Forms Tutor and Frames Tutor.

Hello. My name is Joe  and I'm going to give you a few simple lessons on how to make a Web Page. I must warn you though, this is for "all wet behinda ears" Newbies. If you're at all experienced at this sort of thing, you'll probably find this tutorial a bit of a yawner.

You'll be happy to learn that it's really pretty simple. The basic idea is this... A web page is nothing more than a file, a HTML file to be exact. It's called HTML because web page documents have the file extension .html or .htm. HTML stands for Hyper Text Mark-up Language. (If you are unclear about this file extension stuff, then you really are newbie!! Take a quick detour for a few ramblings on the subject)...

if you want to read the whole story just go to...

These are the best HTML tutorials I have found on the net!
Have a good time, Edi
