I have been creating my own web pages for a few years and while it can be an interesting and rewarding pastime, not to mention an educational boon, it can also become frustrating at times. There are many HTML editors on the market today; however, I believe that a basic understanding of HTML (hypertext markup language) is necessary for the complete understanding of the process of WEB page design.

What follows is a compilation of what I found useful. Although a complete index is included, I would suggest that you start at the beginning and work your way through the practice exercises. The tutorial was originally designed to introduce my own students to the world of HTML; therefore, it may be used as a unit plan on Basic HTML as well.

I hope you find this useful.

Good luck!  Kevin Kearney
