Chapter 37. Creating a Simple Web Page > Understanding Personal Web Pages

Understanding Personal Web Pages

Do all your friends have their own pages on the Web? Do you want to get in on the community of folks displaying their own Web handiwork? Then you need to create your own personal Web page—which isn’t all that hard to do, especially if you use one of the many sites specializing in easy-to-create Web pages. These sites make it easy to generate good-looking pages without your having to learn any fancy programming, and then they post your pages on the Web where all your friends and family can visit them.

Before you start building your Web page, however, a short review of how Web pages work is in order. As you recall from Chapter 6, “Browsing the Web,” a Web page is nothing more than a computer file, a document composed in a certain language or code. Just like a word processing document, a Web page document consists of lines of text, with other elements (pictures, sounds, and links) thrown in as appropriate.
