Is HTML the only coding language that you need to know in order to develop a single, static, non-interactive web-page?
I just want a complety blank website with some text on it. That's it!

Update!

Yes, it turns out HTML is the only programming language that you need to know in order to make a simple static website. Other languages such as CSS and JavaScript are used for further formatting the design, feel and operability of a website, but you don't need them if you do not want people to interact with your webpage (to register, post comments, watch videos, etc.). Furthermore, in order to code a website in HTML, you only need a simple text-editor program such as Notepad.
That's it! :)

You're correct in saying that HTML is the only language needed to create a single, static, webpage.

 

However, using HTML alone can limit the amount of flexibility you have when it comes to styling your webpage and making it look the way you want it to. Though, depending on the purpose of the webpage, it may be that HTML alone will be sufficient and will enable you to format your page the way you'd like.

 

Regarding a text editor, Microsoft's Notepad will enable you to write HTML code and create a webpage, but it lacks syntax highlighting and formatting options that other free (or paid) editors offer. If you're going to be writing a decent amount of HTML, I'd recommend that you check out NotePad++, which is a free text editor that supports syntax highlighting and code formatting for a variety of programming languages.
