HTML Webinar Class

  1. 1. HTML with Brian Pichman
  2. 2. HTML = Hypertext Markup Language • Displays web pages in a web browser. • Web browsers use the tags to interpret the content of the page. • HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (e.g., <html>) • Tags most commonly come in pairs like <h1> and </h1>
  3. 3. Before we learn HTML… • A “website” is a collection of “webpages” – A webpage is PAGENAME.HTML in an HTML site – Your home page should always be index.html • Technically is actually – Webpages are linked together through “hyperlinks” • A website is stored on a server. – A Server has an IP Address ( and a DNS translates to that Address
  4. 4. This is typically at index.html
  5. 5. Color As A Code
  6. 6. What Does HTML Code Look Like?
  7. 7. What Does HTML Code Look Like?
  8. 8. <html> <head> <title>Learning Sites</title> </head> <body> The content of the document...... </body> </html> The <html> element defines what the website is loading (whether it be an HTML site or PHP, etc) Important: Save your home page as: index.html
  9. 9. <html> <head> <title>Learning Sites</title> </head> <body> The content of the document...... </body> </html> The <head> element must include a title for the document, and can include scripts, styles, meta information etc. It lets the browser know what to load Scripts (Like JQUERY) are called in the “Head” Tag
  10. 10. <html> <head> <title>Learning Sites</title> </head> <body> The content of the document...... </body> </html> The <body> element must includes the content on the physical page. If you are using scripts, you can call the placement of the scripts in the body element. Here is where most of the “actual coding” takes place

You will need either a text editor (TextEdit on mac or Notepad on PC) or a tool like Dreamweaver. Uploading Files
  22. 22. Homework … • Pick 2 HTML5 tags (experiment with their attributes) and add them to your practice Web site. OR … • Find an interesting site that uses HTML5 and modify it for your needs. {Note: try a search for “HTML5 exercises” and use whatever interests you. and are great resources too!} • Test and validate your site at • Please take good notes because I’d like to spend some time next week discussing any issues you may have had using HTML5. • Build a simple page (index.html) that describes what you liked in the class and what else you would like to learn. Use at least 5 different tags in the body.
