Designing Web Pages

Web pages are multimedia documents that provide information and contain links to other documents on the Internet, an intranet, a local network, or a hard disk. These links—also called hyperlinks, hypertext, or hypermedia—are highlighted text or graphics that you click to follow a pathway from one Web page to another. Linked Web pages, often called a Web site, are generally related by topic.

Web pages are based on Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)—a simple coding system used to format Web pages. A browser program, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, interprets these special codes to determine how a certain Web page should be displayed. Different codes mark the size, color, style, and placement of text and graphics as well as which words and graphics should be marked as hyperlinks and to what files they link.
