For complete beginners only!
This Hub will bore you to death if you know anything about HTML already. Well, maybe not since this is a rather short hub. I go over some rudimentary basics of HTML and that is it.
This is the code you'll see in an extremely basic HTML document:
<html><head><title>the title of your page</title></head><body><p>Hi world, what's going on?</p></body></html>
HTML consists of opening and closing tags, as you can see. What you just saw was mostly self explanatory, but just so you know the <p> tag stands for paragraph - It just indicates the start of a new paragraph.
You can start writing HTML documents right now by opening up Notepad and typing on code. Save the file with the extension (dot)html. I recommend using a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor like Dreamweaver so that typing code is more pleasant. That acronym is meant to be said as a word, so you know.
Alright, I just told you what HTML is. A Hub like this might be a good one to share with your grandparents if they're wondering what HTML is and you don't want to explain it to them.
A lot of coders waste a lot of time writing the same bits of code over and over and, most notably people who are new to it. In this Hub Page, I share a list of free tools which helps you save tons of time when you write code.
