    Everything You Need To Know About HTML
    by James Thomason

    Hello, my name is James Thomason and I am here to encourage you to download my new eBook. It is available by visiting

    It is called 'Everything You Need To Know About HTML' and teaches the reader to fully understand a language that really needs to be known to go succeed anywhere on the WWW.

    Imagine this. The boss wants a website for your company and wants you to create and manage it. And wants it by five. What do you do then?

    The text below is the first chapter for the ebook. It is under copyright laws so if you want it, download it from the ebook! Feel free to refer it to friends in private.


    1. Introduction

    The web is a huge resource of websites filled with absolutely everything. You can buy the bread and milk from a supermarket’s site, visit a site dedicated to pigs, book your next holiday or whatever else may pop into your head. That’s the web. Oh, it’s fun too.
    As you can see it is endless, and you can be a part of it too.

    “What!!!” I can hear you shouting. Yes, you can send e-mails and host your own website. Heck, it doesn’t even have to be exciting. Tell me about yourself, write me a poem, show me a photo of your cats, write about the time you fell off a bridge, tell me what makes you tick. I can guarantee you there will be someone at the other end of the line banging their head on a brick wall, but that is your testimony to the web. Make the most of it.

    An Introduction to HTML

    HTML? What’s that? HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is the language of the World Wide Web. HTML is not the only language that is used on the Web, but if you’re going to start anywhere, you’re going to have to start here. That’s that.

    How the World Wide Web Works

    The World Wide Web is a very complex thing, but over time, things can get quite tricky and if you are going to make it anywhere on the web, you will need to know what goes on in getting that page dedicated to pigs onto your screen.

    There are three main parts to this piece of technology:
    • The server- this is where the page comes from.
    • The client- the person who receives the page- you.
    • The protocol- the thing that connects the two.

    The documents are stored on the server and when the client requests it from his or her computer, the page is sent through the network using HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). In more detail, when the client makes a request to the server, it uses HTTP to request it from the server. The server processes the request and then uses HTTP (again) to send the document to the client where it is shown to the human viewer.

    What You Need to Make a Website

    Not much! All you need is a text editor capable of saving in ASCII format such as Notepad or WordPad on a Windows platform or Simple Text on a Macintosh and a browser like Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    HTML is a platform-independent language, so you can use any operating system, Windows or Macintosh.
