I can’t believe it’s been so long since I started this series with The Basics of (X)HTML Tags. Luckily, this “How To” group writing project from PureBlogging reminded me that I need to make a new post!
So, here’s a short slideshow explaining the parts that make up an (X)HTML Document, which is basically the skeleton of every web page you see on the internet. (This series is made for anyone who’s completely new to writing (X)HTML and CSS.) Enjoy!
And here’s the code for you to copy and paste into your own HTML file:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<title>Basic HTML Document Template: HTML 4.01 Strict</title>
Like I mentioned in the intro for this series, I strongly recommend starting with HTML, because using valid XHTML involves some tricky issues. More on that later, though.
