To Do

Before you begin working with this hour, you should start with some text that you want to put on a Web page.

  1. Find (or write) a few paragraphs of text about yourself, your company, or the intended subject.

  2. Be sure to save it as plain, standard ASCII text. Notepad and most simple text editors always save files as plain text, but you might need to choose it as an option (after selecting File, Save As) if you're using another program.

  3. As you go through this hour, you will add HTML commands (called tags) to the text file, making it into a Web page. Use Notepad or one of the editors mentioned in Hour 1 to do this; don't use Word or WordPad!

  4. Always give files containing HTML tags a name ending in.htm (or.html if you prefer) when you save them. This is important: If you forget to type the.htm or.html at the end of the filename when you save the file, most text editors will give it some other extension (such as.txt or.doc). If that happens, you won't be able to find it when you try to look at it with a Web browser.
