HTML is basically used for creating formatted documents, which can appear stylish in web browsers. As we said earlier chapter, HTML page is a document which contains text and markups, which makes appearance of the text in stylish manner.

Well, for creating a basic html document or a HTML page, you need a text editor like Note Pad. You can also make use of other HTML document creation tools such as Dreamweaver.

For viewing the created page, you need a web browser. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera are some of the browsers available today.

As we said, HTML is markup language that will transform the ordinary text into stylish formats wherever applicable. The Markups are nothing but, commands or instructions for browsers to format the ordinary text matter into stylish text. The Markups are specified using < > characters.

The HTML documents or pages do have extensions of ".HTML" or ".HTM". While saving the document in Dreamweaver select any one of extensions and save it. Preferable extension now days, is ".HTML".

Now, let us create our first HTML document to display "Hello, Welcome to ProgrammingBasics.In" from it.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  Hello Welcome to ProgrammingBasics.In

This will display the message in the default style of the browser.

Suppose, if you want Hello to be in big size, and Welcome to ProgrammingBasics.In to appear in the next line and in normal size, then,

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>HTML Document</title>
  <p>Welcome to ProgrammingBasics.In</p>

It will display Hello in the default size of the header 1.
In the next topic, your will get information on Headers and content formatting.
