HTML is not a programming language, it is called a "markup language". A programming language uses decision control, logical steps, repetition and functions, as well as needing a "compiler" to convert the code to machine language, or a code that is readable by the computer. A "markup language" is interpreted by a program, in our case, Netscape or Internet Explorer. A markup documents uses 'tags'. Tags are always in '<' and '>'. It is a good idea to learn a basic assortment of tags that you will use again and again, and expand on your knowledge by experimenting with them. It is often wise to begin with a simple page, and then apply various touches to make it more fancy. All in all, it is important to have fun with your page and develop something professional and appealing.
