BASIC HTML

As many people ask me the same question over and over again on how to make a home page.Actually, HTML language is the same idea of other language that It runs by the bunch of codes. But HTML language is the easier language to learn. Here, I try to provide as much as commands that I know , and I hope it may help you guys :thumbsup:

1. you can open any text editors, but I recommand you guys open the Notepad or Write pad to edit the command codes. If you are using Windows 95/98, NT please click on the "START" button down to your left bottom. And then click on "Programs ==> Accessories ==> Notepad or Write pad.

Here is the basic form of the HTML language

Header

Header is the location where you put tittle of your homepage, discription, keywords, author, and so on... It starts with command and finishes with command
Title: Title is start with <title> and ends with </tittle> for the title of your homepage!

More in header: In the header, you can also put the discription, keywords, author, and so on...
Example: Description <meta name="description" content="This helps people understand the basics of HTML">
Example: Keywords <meta name="keywords" content="Any word you put in here will come up in the search eingies">
Example: Author <meta name="Author" content="ViruS">




Body
Body In the body, you can set the default of background image, background color, font color, link, vlink, alink and more.

Background = That is the image backround for default
Bgcolor = That is the color default for the background
text = That is the color default of the font you want to have
Link = That is the color of the link that you did not click yet.
Vlink= That is the color of the link that you already clicked.
Alink= That is the color that when you click the link.
Example: <body background="http://www.vietfun.com/background1.gif" bgcolor="ffffff" text="8000FF" link="8000FF" vlink="0000FF" alink="66FF00">
Keys References For Text

<h2>Some Text</h2> you will see you will see the text smaller!
Bold <B> Some Text</B> you will see: Some Text IN BOLD
Italic <I>Some Text</I> you will see: Some Text IN ITALIC
Center <center>Some Text</center> you will see: The text in the center

Underline <U>Some Text</U> you will see: Some Text
Font Size <font size=+1>Some Text</font> ( You can increase the number, as big the number is, as big the text you will see.)
Font Color <font color="FF0000">Some Text</font> you will see: Some Text
Font Face <font face="Comic Sans MS">Some Text</font> you will see: Some Text (With the font face, you have to type exactly the font face name that avarible in your computer. If other people have that type of font, it will display the face of that font. If other people did not have that font face, it will display the default fonts of the browser)


Note: You can add more then 2 tags together.

Example: <B><I><font size=+2 face="Comic Sans MS">Some Text</font></I></B> you will see: [I]Some Text[/I]



OK so they are the basics. I will add some more but get them going and if you have any questions just pm me or ask in the forum !

Thanks,
Claudio

And for the font colors, they do accept text (for lack of better terminology - what I mean is it will accept the text "red" instead of #FF0000). If you want a more custom and unique color, there are programs that will assist you. 3C was a good and very simple program for this, but I am not sure if it is still available.
