What is HTML Basic Information

Introduction To HTML:

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language, it's much simpler than programming languages like Java, Perl, C, or BASIC
This tutorial will hopefully teach you how to make your own pages
(hopefully by the time you finish reading all the info) To add stuff to your mara sites you
need to learn what HTML is and what each tag means.

What it does:

A Web page consists of an HTML file, plus any image (or picture files) used on your web page. The HTML file (a normal text file) contains all the text to display,
and also acts as the glue to hold the text and images together in the right places, and display them in the right style or positions.
Writing an HTML file means writing out the text you wish to display,
then inserting any tags you want in the proper places. Tags begin with a character, and tell a browser *such as IE and foxfire* to do something special when displaying a page, like show text in italic or bold, or in a
larger font, or to show an image, or to make a link to another Web page.

How to set it up:

Although HTML has many tags you can use, you don't need to know them all to use HTML, you can get by with just a few. You don't need an HTML editor program
to write HTML. Some people like to use them, and that's fine, but many pros and beginners prefer to use
a plain text editor *LIKE NOTEPAD* and insert the tags themselves, as I'm doing here. So good
luck and again if you still have questions after reading this full tutorial PLEASE mail me and ask.
One doesn't learn if they don't ask for help or ask questions, just rememeber to make an honest effort first.

Rules of thumb:

*PS marasite pages do NOT show tags as text unless in mailings or posting so all tags are being displayed
in scroll box form so all you have to do if you want is just copy the info and paste it in your pages,
edit it as you see fit, there's just a few things to remember.

1.To get your home page in Marasites to show That page HAS to be named HOME
2.Tags DON'T work in your profile so you can't link to other pages in your profile page or siggy lines
3.In order to make a great page, LEARN to follow directions and read every bit of info you can!
4.Use NOTEPAD to do your editing for EVERYTHING you do before you make pages and save the info
in a EASY to find area on your computer and name it something simple!

NOTE!!! All codes are in a textarea scrollboxs so that you may copy and paste them where you may need them
ALL codes are editable so PLEASE look at the coding once you add it and edit it to suit YOU,
I don't need people telling me they don't work because they forgot to add a URL
or a number where it says 'add number' OR 'URL HERE' or to remove a * (star) mark where it's stated as it won't always show in a text box
Unless I add it so member can see what I'm trying to teach them.

Please search the list to the rigth to get a general idea where you'd like to go to figure out just what it is your trying to learn, if you need a table click on tables if your looking for info on images go to images. thanks
