So, you want to make a Web Page!
Lesson 11

adapted from Joe Barta's tutorials at- PageTutor.com


If you don't already have one, be sure to create a new folder titled Lesson_11 in your HTML folder


Start by creating a simple HTML page. (don't forget the title)

<html> 
<head> 
<title>Lesson 11</title> 
</head> 
<body>
</body> 
</html>

Let's learn about links!!!

It's really very simple. First, we'll make a link to Google. Start with this...

<body>  
Go to Google!  
</body>  

nn

Go to Google!

 

Then add a pair of anchor tags.

<body>  
Go to <a>Google!</a>  
</body>  

nn

Go to Google!

 

Add the URL and you're done! (URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator). That's a big fancy phrase that the computer people came up with (they tend to do that a lot). A URL is just an address on the web. You specify it like so: href="url". And since Google's URL is http://www.google.com/ our link ends up like so...

<body>  
Go to <a href="http://www.google.com/">Google!</a>  
</body>  

nn

Go to Google!

 

Let's do one more.

<body>  
Go to <a href="http://www.google.com/">Google!</a>  
<p>Go to CNN</p>  
</body>  

nn

Go to Google!

Go to CNN

 

<body>  
Go to <a href="http://www.google.com/">Google!</a>  
<p>Go to <a href="http://www.cnn.com/">CNN</a></p> 
</body>  
 

nn

Go to Google!

Go to CNN

 

 

Save as: Lesson_11.html in your HTML/Lesson_11 folder
