Note:
The topics in this lesson have been keyed with HTML 4 For the World Wide Web by Elizabeth Castro. "Textbook" refers to the book we're using and "Text Site" refers to on-line examples from the book.

To view the actual HTML coding of these examples and the ones on this page, select "Document Source" or "View Source" from your browser's View menu.

Let's Get Started!

Basic Home Page

This home page starts out with an image, links, and the
<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
    (this tag is critical so browsers can recognize "old" code v.s. newer code....)
<HTML>,
<HEAD>
    <TITLE>  </TITLE> (this is what shows in the top Browser bar....)
</HEAD>
<BODY>,
    <BR>,
    <P>,
    [<P ALIGN ="CENTER"> </P>],   (the newest version of HTML recommends this format)
    <Hn>
    <UL> or <OL>
        <LI>  (this not L (one)!  I as in informal)
</BODY>
</HTML>
