Hanna's WelcomeMy name is Hanna.

I’m going to show you how to create a basic web page using HTML. 
H-T-M-L are initials that stand for HyperText Markup Language (computer people love initials and acronyms -- you'll be talking acronyms ASAP – that’s As Soon As Possible)

H stands for Hyper.  In this case, hyper means you can move around the web, starting and stopping where you want.  It’s the opposite of linear, which means “in a straight line.”

T stands for Text.  Most of HTML is written in text, just like the letters you use to write a sentence.

M stands for Markup.  The symbols (or tags) you use around your text to make your web page look the way you want it to look.

L is for language.  Together, the text and markup create a language your computer, and web browser, can read. 

Learning the HTML tags you need to make a web page is easy.  So let’s get started!
