So, you want to make a
Web Page!

Just a note- this tutorial is geared towards those using Windows95
It is also shamelessly biased towards Netscape. But rest assured, most of it should work just fine for all you Internet Explorers
and users of other (there are other?) operating systems.

Hello. I'm going to give you a few simple lessons on how to make a Web Page. I must warn you though, this is for "all wet behinda ears" Newbies. If you're at all experienced at this sort of thing, you'll probably find this tutorial a bit of a yawner.
You'll be happy to learn that it's really pretty simple. The basic idea is this... A web page is nothing more than a file, a HTML file to be exact. It's called HTML because web page documents have the file extension .html or .htm. HTML stands for Hyper Text Mark-up Language.

Let's get started. First, if you have any of them fancy HTML editors and have an inkling to break em in now... hang-on. Although most of you will will find these tools helpful and easy to use - they'll be even more valuable once you learn the basics, so don't even worry about it now. Let's first learn the basics of HTML.

What's the best way to learn HTML?? A Notepad!

Another tool you'll need is a browser to view your web pages. Netscape Navigator is what I strongly recommend. If you're using something else, it should be OK for most things, but you may be somewhat limited. If you're using something provided by America Online, CompuServe, or one of those Internet in a Box packages, you're on your own because I have no idea what they give you to work with.

With that out of the way I can say with confidence that you are less than 5 minutes away from making your first web page! So.. off to lesson 1.
