Every page you view on the internet is "written" in HTML. HTML is a simple markup language to format web files and display basic elements in them. For example, HTML is used to mark different elements as headers or paragraphs.
You can use software to create webpages so you don't need to hand-code all the HTML. However, you should use programs that keep the HTML clean, so you can easily edit the page by hand if you want to.
Here are some possible choices:
- On Windows? Microsoft Expression Web is a good free webpage editor for Windows. Continue to the Microsoft Expression Web tutorial for a quick start using it.
- Want advanced professional software, whatever the cost? Then Download Adobe Dreamweaver. Its free to try for a month, but costs $20/month afterwards
- See Tools to Create Websites for more possible options.
After you've learned about static websites above, you can continue on to Dynamic Web Sites.
