How do you create a simple web page?

1. If you do not have Notepad open, open it.

2. Highlight the following text (the part that has > and < signs sprinkled through it) by clicking and dragging.

3. When the text is highlight, click on the Edit key at the top of the screen and then on copy.

4. Toggle to Notepad using the Alt/Tab keys. Click on Edit and on Paste, copying the text into Notepad.

5. Go through the text in Notepad and take out all of the periods after the lesser than symbols (<.) Those periods appear to keep the commands from being active in this sample.

<.html>
<.title>name of the file<./title>
<.body bgcolor=#fffff>
<.a name="top">
<.h2>Title You Want to Appear on the Page<./h2>
<.hr>
<.p>
Type in a paragraph of the body text you wish to appear in the page, and
when that paragraph is done, then put in a paragraph break.
<.p>
Put more text here.
<.p>
<.ul>
<.li><.a href="filename.htm">link name<./a>Put the first internal link here.
<.li><.a href="filename.htm">link name<./a>Put the second internal link here.
<.li><.a href="http://address.filename.htm">link name<./a>Put external
link here.
<./ul>
<.a href="#top">[top]<./a>
<./html>

3. While still in Notepad, save the file to disk, putting an htm tag after the period.

4. In your browser (usually Netscape or Explorer), click on the "File" option and then select the "open a file" option. Open the same file you just saved. It should come up in the browser looking like a web page.

5. To make changes, go back to Notepad and change the file in Notepad; then save the file and reload it in the browser. You must always save the changes in Notepad before you reload in the browser.

6. Make a new file in Notepad and create a new HTML file, one you want to link to the first document. Save it with the same name you put in the link command on the first page.

7. Reload the original file in the browser and click on the link to see if the new document comes up.
