Getting Started With HTML
What you need to get started with HTML
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 BBEdit. To find Notepad/BBEdit on your computer:
In Windows 95, XP, Vista and Windows 7 find the program group named "Accessories" and double click to open it.
You should see an icon like this: or Open it by double clicking on the icon.
On a Mac, you should be able to find "BBEdit" under the Apple menu.
3. You will need a Web browser of your choice. If you possibly can, use the latest version of Firefox, Google Chrome, 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.
