My 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!
