Creating an HTML document is very easy. To begin coding HTML , need only two things: a simple-text editor and the dedication to follow this tutorial!
Notepad is the most basic of simple-text editors and you will probably code a good amount of HTML with it.
HTML is platform independent, you will need to save your HTML files in standard text format,
sometimes known as ASCII. The easy way to do this is use a program like notepad.exe in Windows,
pico in Linux, and the like.
If you'd prefer to use a word processor like Word or WordPerfect to write HTML code,
you can do so, but need to save your files as "Text" or "Text Only.
" You will see this option in a drop down box in your "Save As..." screen.
If you use a word processor and forget to save it as Text format,
you will see only garbled data when you try to view the page with a web browser.
