The Basics: HTML [2007]

Post by Stanley on Wed Nov 20, 2013 11:18 pm

----**LET ME FIRST SAY**
This is very very very very very old tutorial. This tutorial is way back on the old TTX archive. If you want to criticize, feel free to do so. But I want to disclaim this immediately.


Hello, Stanley here.
I will teach the art of HTML, how to use it, and what it is generally.
First, What is HTML?
HTML is a markup language, not exactly a programming language.
It's exactly what makes up a webpage.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Part 1. HTML Basics

The key starter to make an HTML page and actually get to test it is finding good web browsers to handle it.
My choices would be:
IE(Internet Explorer 8 or 9)
FF(Firefox Version 5 or 6)
Chrome(Version 1)

Anyway, lets move on.
The first thing you need to do to start and HTML web page is start with the html tag, witch in this case is <html>.
Now, this tag <html>, is kind of like your starter tag. It starts the HTML page and ends the HTML page.
Now to end an HTML page you would put this </html>. the / in </html> defines the HTML web page when to stop the page, without it, the page would go on forever. Then you have you headers, never heard of them? Headers are what define the header part of your HTML page. The header tags for you HTML page would be <head> and </head>
So, If we were to put these to tags together, it would make something like this:

HTML Code:

<html>
<head> Welcome to the test page </head>
</html>

What it looks like from the browser:

Welcome to the test page

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Part 2. Paragraphs and Breaks and Body

Now, the reason why I separated the basic tags with Paragraphs, is because this tag has more then one name.
The tags for paragraphs in a HTML page could be <p1></p1>, <p2></p2>, <p3></p3> etc.
p1 means the first paraghraph, and obviously you know what the other numbers mean.

Now let's see what you've learned, Check out this code

<html>
<head> Welcome to the test page </head>
<p1> This is where you can test anything you want! </p1>
<p2> All the fun right here! </p2>
</html>

You see how it the code gets bigger? It means we're adding more to the page.

The body is whats the middle of your page, mostly it is 50% of your content in your whole webpage.
The body supports the paragraphs, and also programming languages like PHP and JS.
So, the tags for the body, obviously is <body>&</body>
Now look at this.

<html>
<head> Wlecome to the test page! </html>
<body>
<p1> Where you can test all you want! </p1>
<p2> All you can do right here! </p2>
</body
</html>

You see? I hope so, I can't do this in brail Sad
Now for the breaks, breaks is what I call them the tags are <br>&</br>
In an HTML page, You can't just type something and it will show up, You either have to use the tags above, or <br></br>
Ok, Now that you've learned the basic HTML commands.
It's your time to experiment. Cool

<html>
<head>Welcome to page</head>
<br> The best there is!</br>
<body>
<p1> All you need here! </p1>
<p2> Everything you can get </p2>
</body>
<br> Check out our pages sometime. </br>
</html>

Alright, Bye guys. !cool

For 6 years ago this is pretty good tutorial. But I don't see why someone would need a tutorial on markup language that is self explanatory.

Exactly. HTML isn't even a programming language. But I guess for those who wish to learn HTML they can start here.
