Tutorial: Basic html

July 10, 2010

Is everyone having a good summer? Spending lots of time in the sun? I am! :)

Here is a little mini tutorial for you!

html is made up of a whole bunch of tags.

This is what a basic tag looks like.

You start a tag with < then enter your command, in the case "b" for "bold" and end your tag with >

Everytime you use a tag you must have a "start" tag and a "stop" tag.
Basically you have to tell the computer were you want to start bold,
and where you want it to end.

Let me show you an example. Let's make this sentence bold.

I love summer!

I would type this.....

To make a "stop" tag you just add a / right after the <

Make sense???

Are you thinking "when am I ever going to use this?" 
There are a bunch of ways to use this but one way you can use this RIGHT NOW....Have you ever noticed when you are making a comment on someones blog it says:
"You can use some html tags"

That means the you can make your comment
or hyperlink something {another post another day}


I bet you always wanted to make your comment bold huh? :)

Here is what it would look like.

Then after you post it will look like....

here is you assignment:
leave me a comment using an html tag!
Go! You can do it!!
