Welcome to HTML Basics. This Site leads you through the basics of Hyper Text Markup Language.
To begin using HTML, you will need to have a few things. Here is the big list of items you need to have to get started.
1. You will need to have a computer that is running. Most likely you have this already, since you are reading this page.
2. You will need a text editor of your choice. If you have windows, Notepad will do the trick. If you have a Mac, you can use BBE dit. To find Notepad/BBE dit on your computer.
In Windows 3.x, find the program group named "Accessories" and double click to open it.
3. You will need a web browser of your choice. If you possibly can, use the latest version of Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
4. You will need a place to save your work. You can use your hard drive, a floppy disk, or your web server. You don't have to work online, you can write the html and use your web browser offline on your own computer. We will get to that shortly, in the next tutorial.
Okay, once you have the above materials, you can begin creating your own web pages with HTML. Let's move on to the next tutorial, Using the Materials.
