In this article I will tell you a simple webpage design using HTML and how to host it on www.freewebs.com. This article is for newbies only.
HTML documents use TAGS. A tag is a string in the language surrounded by a less than (<) and a greater (>) than sign. An opening tag is a string that does not begin with a slash (/). An ending tag is a string that begins with a slash (/). The region between an opening tag and a closing tag with the same string is referred to as an element.
An opening<html> and a closing </html> tag should surround the entire html document. We should also find opening and closing tags for <head> and <body> elements. An HTML document code should appear as shown below.
I will tell you some other simple tags.
The title of the HTML document is placed between the opening<TITLE> and closing </TITLE> tags. <TITLE> tags are placed within the <HEAD> tags.
<HR> tag places a horizontal Rule. This tag is within the <BODY> tags.
<BR> tag represents a line break
<P> tag represents a paragraph break.
<H1> ..... </H1> tags represents a level 1 heading.
<H2> ..... </H2> tags represents a level 2 heading.
<CENTER> ..... </CENTER> tags aligns the text between them centrally.
BGCOLOR this attribute is used in the opening <BODY> tag for setting the background color of Webpage.
If you want to give a link to yahoomail from your site, you can do that with the help of <A> tags like this.
<A HREF=http://www.yahoomail.com>yahoomail</A> Result : Thease tags underline yahoomail. So if you click yahoomail then it will take you to www.yahoomail.com
