Chapter 4. Creating Your First Page > Build Your HTML Template

Build Your HTML Template

As you saw in Chapter 3, “What You Need to Get Started,” all you need to create HTML documents is a basic text editor. HTML pages, although they include the .htm or .html file extensions, are simply ASCII text files. Any program that generates ASCII text files works fine as an HTML editor—even a word processor such as WordPerfect or Microsoft Word, as long as you save correctly.

After you have that program, you’re ready to create a basic template for your HTML documents. This is the skeleton of the HTML page that you use for building content-filled pages, using the markup elements discussed later in the book. The skeleton includes the document elements, which are simply the markup elements that define the file you’re creating as a Web page.
