Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard language for creating documents for the Web.  HTML consist of a series of tags "< ? >" which determine how information is displayed and viewed on the Web.

Tags are placed in small angled brackets such as <html> or <body>.  These tags give instructions to the Web browser--the program you use to view Web documents like the one you are using now.

When constructing your Web document, these tags should be typed in a word processor such as Note Pad and saved with an .htm or .html extension (for example mysite.htm).  When you are ready to view your Web document, use your browser to open the file from the location where you saved it.

Whew! Now that was not as difficult as you thought, was it?  That's all you need to know for now.  If you are ready to get started, click on any of the descriptions to the left.
