Head Elements

HTML pages have two main parts: the body (signified by enclosing <BODY> and </BODY> tags), and the head (signified by <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags). All the text and graphics that make up the page appear between body tags and can be edited in GoLive's Layout Editor. Head tags, although they usually don't contain visible page elements, can store lots of information about the page that visitors to your site can use when searching for your site. More importantly, head tags offer a means of controlling the display and other properties of Web pages. Head tags can vary the behavior of a page based on the user's browser, for example. Many head tags also contain scripts that execute when the page is loaded.

The most basic head tag is the <TITLE> tag, which specifies the name of your page (for use in a Web browser's bookmarks list). You fill in the title tag when you replace the words "Welcome to GoLive" at the top of the Document window with your title.
