Helpful Sites for HTML Editing

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language.  HTML code uses text to describe a page's appearance, deliver text content, instruct the page which images to display, and provide links to other web pages on the Internet.  HTML pages can be understood by any browser on any computer.  Do you HAVE to learn code?  The answer is, it is really obvious if you don't!  You can some things to your pages that your authoring software may not know how to do.  A little code here and there is useful--and fun!
HTML commands, called tags, are contained with <angle brackets.>  The code can be all caps, lowercase, or any combination. 

There will be times when you may want to reference HTML code, especially if you are using software that doesn't seem to cooperate.  You can always reference the text for this course: HTML for the World Wide Web:  Visual QuicksStart Guide,  by Elizabeth Castro, or check out some of the following sites.  I particular like to use the "interactive" sites when I am teaching beginning HTML.
