What are HTML Pages?
Brief HTML Reference Guide In a nutshell, HTML consists of so-called tags, which are always placed inside pointy brackets <>. These tags are, in turn, divided into those that cause a certain action (a line break, for example) and those that format the text (italics would be an example of this). The text formatting tags require a companion tag to the introductory tag at the end of the text you’d like formatted a particular way. A few practical examples will help you understand the functions of these tags:
Here is a <br> Pagebreak.
<i>This text will appear in italics.</i>
These HTML code fragments must be incorporated into the basic HTML structure. The complete code would look like this:
<title>Title of the Page (appears in the browser in the title
Here is a <br> Pagebreak. <i>This text will appear in italics.</i>
The entire source code must be saved in an ASCII file. But the file extension must be either
*.HTM or *.HTML, not *.TXT. Be careful: many text editors, especially Windows editors, save files whose names are given as *.HTM as *.HTM.TXT. In this case, you must change the filename manually in the file manager or Windows Explorer.
