Getting Started with HTML - How to Build a Home on the Web

The final step is to close off the HTML and BODY tag by adding </BODY> and </HTML> to the end of the document.

So, all together you have:
-------------------------------------- New Document-------------------------------------------------

<TITLE> This is Where your Title Goes </TITLE>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#0000AA" VLINK="#0000AA" ALINK="#FF0000">
<H1>The is My Headline</H1>
<HR SIZE="4" WIDTH="75%">
<U>This is underlined text.</U>
<B>This is bold text.</B>
<I>This is text is italized.</I>
<FONT COLOR="#hexnum" FACE="fontname" SIZE="2">This is text is formatted by the FONT tag.</FONT>
<A HREF=""></A><BR>
<A HREF=""></A><BR>
<A HREF=""></A><BR>
<ADDRESS><A HREF="">Your Name Here</A></ADDRESS>
-------------------------------------- New Document-------------------------------------------------

Now for the final step (I mean it this time), save your untitled document as something.htm or something.html. Something can be any name, but it is critical that your files have an .htm or .html extension. This is so the browser knows how to handle them.

Now you have just completed a very simple web page, there is, however, one last step if you want everybody in the world to see it. And that step is to upload it to a server. You will need special software to do this, which is explained on the first page.

To view your page locally on your own up the old web browser, go to open file (usually under the file menu), and find where you saved your document, and click okay. This should bring up some text and a picture if you used one.
