About thisTutorial
We created thistutorial way back in1994, when theweb was young.
W
RITING HTML WAS CREATED
to help teachers createlearning resources that access information on the Internet. Here,you will be writing a lesson called
Volcano Web
. However, thistutorial may be used by anyone who wants to create web pages.You can get a sense of the results by looking at our illustriousalumniandkudos or what people sayabout the tutorial. By the time you have reached the end of this tutorial you will beable to construct a series of linked web pages for any subject thatincludes formatted text, pictures, and hypertext links to otherweb pages on the Internet. If you follow the steps for the BasicLevel (lessons 1-14) you will develop apage about volcanoes and if you go on to the Advanced Level (lessons 15-29), you willcreate an enhancedvolcano web site.For faster performance, you candownloadan archive of all filesused in this tutorial. Most of the lessons can be done off-line. If you are having trouble connecting to this site, try ourexperimental servers,JadeorZirconbut please be nice to these machines; they are doing other work for us.

Writing HTML
WhyCreateWebPages?
If you've come thisfar, you likely havean answer.
T
HE WEB IS BECOMING AN INTEGRAL PART
of ourworking (and playing) world. You cannot spit anymore thesedays without hitting a URL (if you do not know what a URL is,you will find out here). In a very short time span, the web hasrevolutionized the way we access information, education,business, entertainment. It has created industries where therewere none before.Being able to develop information on the web might be a jobskill, a class requirement, a business necessity, or a personalinterest. Unlike any other previous medium, the ability to "write"HTML allows you to potentially connect with millions of otherpeople, as your own self-publisher.

UT MOST SIMPLY,
 HTML, is a format that tells acomputer how to display a web page. The documents themselvesare plain text files (ASCII) with special "tags" or codes that aweb browser knows how to interpret and display on your screen.This tutorial teaches you how to create web pages the old-fashioned way -- by hand. There are software "tools" that allowyou to spin web pages without touching any HTML. But if youare serious about doing more than a page or two, we believe agrounding in the basics will greatly accelerate what you can do.

Writing HTML
Everything you create in this tutorial is designed to run from anydesktop computer; it does not depend on access to a web serveror specialized computer programming.
GettingReady
We will assume youhave a basicknowledge of howto use your webbrowser menus,buttons, andhypertext links.
Y
OU WILL ALSO NEED A TEXT EDITOR PROGRAM
 capable of creating plain text files e.g. SimpleText for theMacintosh or NotePad for Windows.
We strongly urge that youuse the most basic text editor while you learn HTML and thenlater you can explore HTML "editors"
If you use a wordprocessor program then you
must
save your files as plain ASCIItext format. You should also be familiar with switching betweenmultiple applications as well as using the mouse to copy andpaste selections of text.If youdownloadthe tutorial files, you can do nearly all of thelessons off-line.We suggest that you proceed through the lessons in order, but atany time you can return to the index to jump to a differentlesson. Within each lesson you can compare your work to asample file for that lesson. Each lesson page has a link to aconcise summary of thetagsas well as links to otherreference  sites.For convention, all menu names and items will be shown in
bold
 text. All text that you should enter from the keyboard will appearin
typewriter style.
