Basic HTML Tutorials

HTML was originally an informal specification for marking up scientific documents. Between 1990 and 1995, Tim Berners-Lee and the folks at CERN worked to improve the specification and make it the official language for the World Wide Web. Since HTML 2.0 in 1995, HTML has seen many new versions and features added, though the core of the language remains the same.

Assuming you've read "Before You Begin", this section will teach you the very basics of HTML syntax, text formatting, page structure, and how to insert links, lists, and images into a page.

Tutorial Description
The Foundation of the Web The basic shape and form of HTML syntax, how to write it, and an example page to copy and play around with.

Headings and Paragraphs Headings and paragraphs keep your words organized and your pages easy to read.
Links Links connect pages to other pages, resources, other sites, or even other places on the same page.
Lists HTML features both ordered and unordered lists, and you can nest them comfortably within each other.
Images Part of what makes the Web so appealing is its ability to display images.
