Chapter 2. Creating Your First Scripts > What Do You Need to Get Started?

What Do You Need to Get Started?

One of the nicest things about HTML is that the hurdles you have to leap to get started are not only short, but few in number. In fact, you really need only two things, both of which are free: a text editor to enter the tags and text, and a browser to view the results. (You'll also need a Web server to host the finished pages, but the server isn't necessary when you're creating the pages.) Yes, there are high-end HTML editors and fancy graphics programs, but these fall into the "Bells and Whistles" category and you can create perfectly respectable Web pages without them.

The basic requirements for JavaScript programming are exactly the same as for HTML: a text editor and a browser. Again, there are programs available to help you write and test your scripts, but you don't need them.
