Write HTML Using Notepad or TextEdit

Web pages can be made and altered by utilizing proficient HTML editors.

However, for learning HTML we suggest a basic word processor like Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac).

We think utilizing a straightforward content tool is a decent approach to learn HTML.

Follow the four stages underneath to make your first site page with Notepad or TextEdit.


Step 1: Open Notepad (PC)

Windows 8 or later:

Open the Start Screen (the window symbol at the bottom left on your screen). Type Notepad.

Windows 7 or earlier:

Open Start > Programs > Accessories > Notepad


Step 1: Open TextEdit (Mac)

Open Finder > Applications > TextEdit

Also change some preferences to get the application to save files correctly. In Preferences > Format > choose "Plain Text"

Then under "Open and Save", check the box that says "Ignore rich text commands in HTML files".

Then open a new document to place the code.


Step 2: Write Some HTML

Write or copy some HTML into Notepad.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Heading</h1>

<p>My first paragraph.</p>

</body>
</html>

Notepad


Step 3: Save the HTML Page

Save the file on your computer. Select File > Save as in the Notepad menu.

Name the file "index.htm" and set the encoding to UTF-8 (which is the preferred encoding for HTML files).

View in Browser

You can use either .htm or .html as file extension. There is no difference, it is up to you.


Step 4: View the HTML Page in Your Browser

Open the spared HTML document in your most loved program (double tap on the record, or, on the other hand right-click - and pick "Open with").

The result will look much like this:
