Before you start you need to know the following terms:
URL: Uniform Resource Locator (The web site address)
WWW: World Wide Web
HTTP: Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (This provides lonking in between multiple web pages)
HTML: Hyper Markup Language.
SGML: Standard Generalized Markup Language- A sandard for describing markup languages.
DTD: Document Type Definition- This is the formal specification of markup language, written using HTML.
TAGS: TAG is a fundmental component of the structure of a text document. Some examples of tags are heads, tables, paragraphs and lists. There is a starting tag and a closing tag. To make a closing tag just add a”/” to the starting tag. Most, but not all tags have a closing tag. Think of tags as talking to the browser (more or less) is that this is the start of HTML document (<HTML>) AND this is the end of a HTML document (</HTML>).
HTML TAG: The HTML TAG tells you browser that the file contains HTML coded information. The extension.HTML also shows you that this is an HTML document and must be used accordingly. The TAG is: <HTML>…………</HTML>
Head Tag: The head tag defines the first part of your HTML- Coded document that contains the title. The title is shown as a part of your Browser’s window. The Tag is: <HEAD>………….</HEAD>.
Title Tag: The title tag contains your document title and identifies its content in a global context. The title is typically displayed in the title bar of the browser window and not inside the window itself. The title is also one that is displayed on someone’s hot list or bookmark list. This is why you should choose something descriptive, unique and relatively short. A title is also used to identify your page for search engines. Generally, you should keep your titles limited to a maximum of 64 characters. The Tag is: <TITLE>…………..</TITLE>.
Body Tag: The second and largest part of your HTML document is the body, which contains the content of your document (Displayed within the text area of your Browser window).
