HTML: How to create your first web page

how to create web page

Let’s see how you to create your first web page.  You have now installed your first plugin in your VSCode.  As we proceed you may need to add more plugins using the same technique. So congratulations.

Now if you are viewing the code you wrote in day 2 on your web browser, you notice how the <h1> element appears on your browser without any styles and notice also that your title appears on the browser tap – I am using Google Chrome as my browser.

Under the <h1> element you can now add <h2> tag

<h2>This is my first blog Post </h2>

Press enter and add another <h2> element and add

<h2>HTML is amazing</h2>

Now let’s add some paragraphs

Paragraphs are element for larger volume of text. And we declare them thus

<p>text between </p>

To get a dummy text for this example or any template you will build in the future, go to Google and get some blind text. On the search bar just type “blindtext”.  Blind text is commonly used if you don’t have any real text for the page you are developing. You can also use any text in your laptop for this example.

Now copy this and paste under the second <h2> element

<h2>HTML is amazing</h2>

<p>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Donec quam felis, ultricies nec, pellentesque eu, pretium quis, sem. Nulla consequat massa quis enim. Donec pede justo, fringilla vel, aliquet nec, vulputate eget, arcu.

Now suppose you want to do some basic formatting. I’ll show you how to do that. To bold the text, use the strong tag.

Example: This is a very <strong>strong</strong> text and it is designed to be <strong>bold</strong>.

Now for the ***italics*** we use the <em> tags which stands for emphasis.

Example: I would like to <em>emphasis</em> how important it is to follow this course to the end. Don’t run <em>away</em>.

Now for the underlines text, we use the <u> tag though it is not commonly used on the main website.

Example: This text is some <u>underlined</u> text.

Now you will notice with all the line breaks nothing happens in the browser. Therefore to get a line break we use the <br> tag.

Congratulations. You’ve just created your first html web page. It is not formatted and could be used to display text as simple blogs. It is good for the beginning.

Our next task; we will add some images to this page to make it a little lively.

Your final code for how to create web page should look thus

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

            <head>

            <title>My First BlogPost</title>

            </head>

            <body>

            <h1>My first blog Post</h1>

                        <h2>This is my first blog post</h2>

<p>

This is a very <strong>strong</strong> text and it is designed to be <strong>bold</strong>.<br>

I would like to <em>emphasis</em> how important it is to follow this course to the end. Don’t run <em>away</em>.<br>

This text is some <u>underlined</u> text. <br>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus.
