Learn HTML Using Notepad or TextEdit

You can use a simple text editor like Notepad or TextEdit to create and edit HTML documents. Here are the basic steps to create an HTML document using a text editor:

  1. Open your text editor and create a new file.
  2. Add the following code to the file:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>My HTML Page</title>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Hello, World!</h1>
</body>
</html>
  1. Save the file with an .html extension, for example index.html.
  2. Open the file in a web browser to view the HTML page.

Here is a brief explanation of the code:

  • The <!DOCTYPE html> declaration tells the web browser that the document is an HTML5 document.
  • The <html> element is the root element of the HTML document. It contains all other HTML elements.
  • The <head> element contains information about the document, such as the title and any CSS or JavaScript files that are used by the document.
  • The <title> element specifies the title of the document, which is displayed in the browser’s title bar or tab.
  • The <body> element contains the content of the HTML page.
  • The <h1> element defines a level-1 heading.

You can add other HTML elements to the document to add more content and structure to the page. For example, you can use the <p> element to add paragraphs of text, the <img> element to add images, and the <a> element to add links.

You can find more information about HTML elements and how to use them in the HTML documentation.
