    Default HTML Tags / Codes / Web Page Design

    if you're doing business on the Internet, taking the time to learn how to design your own web site and write your own HTML code (hypertext markup language) will play a major role in your success. Not only will learning HTML coding provide you with the freedom to update your own HTML documents, but it will also save you a great deal of money, as you will be able to avoid hiring a professional web designer.

    If you're looking for some HTML tags to spice up your web site, you've come to the right place. You will find a variety of HTML codes and tips to assist you below.

    However, before reviewing the HTML tags, if you're new to HTML and web site design, the following section will assist you in creating an HTML web page. For additional web site design information, make sure you don't miss the web design articles and tutorials at the bottom of this page.

    Creating an HTML Page

    A web page is created using a language called, Hypertext Markup Language, better known as HTML Code. You can write your own coding within a plain text editor, such as Note Pad, or use an HTML editor, which will write the code for you.

    HTML codes, also referred to as HTML tags, are enclosed by the lesser than (<) and greater than (>) brackets and may be written in capital or lower case letters.

    The opening bracket is followed by an element, which is a browser command, and ends with the closing bracket.

    <font size=2>

    An element may also be followed by attributes, which are words describing the properties of the element, and further instruct the browser.

    <font size=2>

    Attributes are only contained in the opening HTML tags to the right of the element and are separated by a space and followed by an equal (=) sign.

    The value follows the equal sign and is enclosed in quotes.

    <font size=2>

    Basic HTML Document Code Structure

    Begin writing your HTML tags by creating your document's basic layout. Copy and paste this code into your text or HTML editor.
    <title>Your Page Title</title>

    This area will contain everything that will be visible through a web browser, such as text and graphics. All of the information will be HTML coded.

    For a complete list of HTML codes, tags and examples, see the HTML chart below.

    <html> - Begins your HTML document.

    <head> - Contains information about the page such as the TITLE, META tags for proper Search Engine indexing, STYLE tags, which determine the page layout, and JavaScript coding for special effects.

    <title> - The TITLE of your page. This will be visible in the title bar of the viewers’ browser.

    </title> - Closes the HTML <title> tag.

    </head> - Closes the HTML <head> tag.

    <body> - This is where you will begin writing your document and placing your HTML codes.

    </body> - Closes the HTML <body> tag.

    </html> - Closes the <html> tag.
    How to Copy and Paste HTML Tags / Codes

    To copy and paste the HTML tags / codes from the HTML chart below into the HTML of your web page, place your mouse pointer over the beginning of the HTML code you would like to copy. Next, click and hold your left mouse button and drag your mouse over all the HTML code you would like to copy (Example of highlighted text). Your HTML code should now be highlighted. Go to "Edit" - "Copy" on your web browser's toolbar and then place your cursor within your HTML code where you would like to place the code. Right click on your mouse and go to "Paste." Your HTML code should now be displaying within your HTML document.

    HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the primary building block of creating a web site. HTML is a very basic markup language and requires a memorization of a few dozen HTML commands that structure the look and layout of each of the web pages. Before writing any HTML code or designing your first web page, you must decide on an HTML editor or text editor such as Notepad, WordPad, and even Microsoft Word. What ever editor you decide on using can change if it isn't working for you........
