When you plan your web page you start by writing everything down on paper. Write what you want your web page to say, show, and do. To make a map of the links you will be using, write a circle in the center of a new sheet of paper and write HOME in it. Then draw lines to other circles that say the names of your sub pages. Later you will learn how to link your home page to your sub pages.
Starting your front page
First we want to have a simple text program to use. Go to START programs Accessories NOTEPAD. Notepad is the only program I found to work for html. After you are in notepad type the following.
- this will start an html document
- starts the header
- title that you see at top left corner on screen
- ends title
- ends header
- starts the body ( the guts )
- ends the body
- ends html document ( IMPORTANT )
After the 1st tag, type the name you want to appear in the upper left corner of your screen. This will put whatever you typed ( between the two title tags ) up in the upper left corner of your screen. Note: Make sure that you type in between the two title tags. If you don't you won't see the title on the screen.
TIME TO SAVE! After you finish typing your title click on the file option menu at the top of the screen. Once there, click "save as". Save the document to a new 3 ½" floppy as home.htm. You must save it .htm or your internet browser will not open. If you are done saving it go to "my computer" on the desktop and click on 3 ½ floppy ( A:\ ) Then click on home.htm. When the file opens up look at the upper left hand corner of your screen. There you should see your title. To edit the web page and add more stuff, click on view ( at top of screen ) then click source. Notepad should open up with the codes you typed earlier. After you are done editing go to file save. Then go back to your web page... [continues]
