Learning And Using HTML

Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML), in short, HTML is the vocabulary used to create webpages. The vocabulary is currently maintained by the internet Consortium (W3C). HTML tags are put into a web page. If you are not used to editing and enhancing and creating webpages, you’ll need some kind of text-message editor to work with the HTML vocabulary.

Your computer, no matter if it’s a Windows or a Mac, includes a text-editing application. For Mac users the text-editing software is TextEdit, and for Windows users the application is Notepad. However, there are many, many free or commercial text editors available for download on the internet.

= $ =p>You might, why would I want to use a different text message editor if my computer already has one? The text editors available online contain features, such as syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, integration of other dialects, etc.; features that improve development productivity. For the purpose of this series, we are going to use one text editor / integrated development environment (IDE) that I have grown quite fond of over the past couple of months.

This text editor is named Atom a free and open source IDE created by the folks at GitHub. At this point, if you do not have Atom already, go on and download Atom now. I am going to teach you the basics during this lesson, but there are extensive online resources open to learn HTML. A specific resource that I use for referencing is the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN).

There are not only reference paperwork for HTML and HTML5 but also CSS, CSS3, JavaScript, and more. So, if you are trapped, or you aren’t sure in regards to a certain tag or attribute mind to the Mozilla Developer Network and simply search for it. Alright, let’s begin. Create a fresh project folder within Documents in File Explorer, if you are a Windows consumer or within the Finder, if you are Mac users.

So, under Documents create a project folder named ExampleWebSeriesSite. Now open Atom, and add the recently created task folder to the sidebar. You can add the folder by clicking on File, Open Folder, and choose the ExampleWebSeriesSite folder within the document Finder or web browser. The ExampleWebSeriesSite folder should appear in the sidebar.

Now that we have a working project folder let’s go ahead and add an index page to our site. In the sidebar right-click the ExampleWebSeriesSite project folder, select New File, and name the new document index.html, press Enter. If the file added properly a new tab should appear with a blank index.html file to the right, and the index.html document should be included under the ExampleWebSeriesSite project folder in the sidebar.

To finish out the first lesson of this series, let’s create the building blocks of our project with the addition of some HTML to the index.html document we just created. Note: for convenience, you can grab the above-mentioned template anytime at this series’ homepage. Prior to going further let’s take a closer go through the markup being used in the template.

The “must be included in every HTML file prior to the“ label. The “ declaration tells the browser what version of HTML the web page is written in. Note: to find out more on the different Doctypes used, go to the W3C’s Recommended set of Doctypes. The ` ` label begins and ends the HTML page. The ` ` tag contains the metadata, the ` ` label, and links to external style sheets. Note: the text that’s written among the ` ` tag appears on the browser tab.

The “ tag is a required label and it defines the title of the HTML record. The ` ` label contains everything visible on the web page. Now you have to include some content to your main page. Remember we are starting the building blocks of our sample task site. The true point of this first lesson is to bring in you to HTML. We are only going to use HTML, no styling yet.
