This is a guide to HTML, a standard markup language for web pages. A text editor and a web browser is all you need to create web pages, view your handiwork, and share information with others all over the world.

This study guide covers simple HTML syntax. For dynamic behavior in websites, see the JavaScript Study Guide. Another separate book covers Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) which handle overall look and styling, but the present book addresses CSS briefly. Additionally, XHTML has its own textbook.
