HTML and CSS Reference
Type the following into the new file that you just made:
1 <!doctype html>
2 <html lang="en">
This is a basic “boilerplate” sort of text, and is present on just about any website that you
look at. Many people would have created theirs manually, while others allowed a manage-
ment system to do the behind-the-scenes coding for them.
After you have saved an HTML file, you can open it with your regular web browser. It will
still be offline, on your system, and not online yet. However, you will be presented with your
HTML, as it would look online (if you were to upload it somewhere).
