Here's how some basic HTML code works

HTML consists of ordinary text, with commands that are enclosed by "<" and ">" characters, or bewteen an "&" and a ";".

Learning HTML is easy because you can view the source code of your favorite webs and copy bits of HTML from other pages. You can keep the HTML tags and replace the content!

Line Breaks

HTML doesn't normally use line breaks for ordinary text. A white space of any size is treated as a single space. This is because the author of the page has no way of knowing the size of the reader's screen, or what size type they will have their browser set for.

There are many free online tutorials to learn HTML. One of the best set of resources is offered by W3C. They have complete tutorials for almost anything you see on the World Wide Web at www.w3schools.com. HTML doesn't normally use line breaks for ordinary text.

Starting and Stopping Commands

Most HTML commands come in pairs: for example. The closing command is always the same as the opening command, except for the addition of a slash.
