  1. What program would you use for HTML editing on the computer you are using? A: I would use a plain text editor
  2. How can you turn your program into a web page? A: All you need to do is type in the code, then save the document, making sure to put an .html extension or an .htm extension to the file (for instance "mypage.html").
  3. What happens to the HTML tags when the program is displayed in a web browser? A: As you can see, the start tag indicates that whatever follows should be written in bold. The corresponding end tag indicates that the browser should stop writing text in bold.
  4. Which extension should you use HTM or HTML? A: HTML
  5. What is a wysiwyg editor? What are the advantages or disadvantages to a wysiwig program? A: "What You see is what you get", used in computing to describe a system in which content displayed during editing appears very similar to the final output, which might be a printed document, web page, slide presentation or even the lighting for a theatrical event. WYSIWYG HTML editors are great tools for beginners to quickly create web pages and put them on the net. Now any one, without knowing HTML, can create visually appealing (?) web sites of their family, pets, business... you name it! WYSIWYG HTML editors are fine for beginners or if you want to create a web site quickly and don't want to fiddle around with HTML code. However, if you plan to develop web sites for a living - make a career out of web development - you need to learn HTML properly.
  6. After I have edited an HTML file, I cannot view the result in my browser. Why? A: Make sure that you have saved the file with a proper name and extension like "c:\mypage.htm". Also make sure that you use the same name when you open the file in your browser.
  7. I have edited an HTML file, but the changes don't show in the browser. Why? A: A browser caches pages so it doesn't have to read the same page twice. When you have modified a page, the browser doesn't know that. Use the browser's refresh/reload button to force the browser to reload the page.
  8. What browser should I use? A:You can do all the training with all of the well-known browsers, like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape, or Opera. However, some of the examples in our advanced classes require the latest versions of the browsers.
  9. Does my computer have to run Windows? What about a Mac? A:You can do all your training on a non-Windows computer like a Mac.
