- Describe the origin, purpose, and features of HTML.
- HTML is intended for display on a web page (coding).
it can place media on a web page as well. Any computer used to create
a web page can read HTML. HTML also uses individual markup codes called tags.
These tags, for the most part, need both an opening and a closing tag.
- Describe the software needed to create and test web pages.
- All that is needed to create and test web pages are a
World Wide Web browser and a text editor. The text editor
allows you to write up the necessary codes needed to create
a web page, so once you're fluent in HTML you'll be able to
create web pages. Once you have created your page, all you need
to do is test them using a popular web page such as: Firefox,
Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer.
- Describe the purpose of the head and body sections of a web page.
- The head section is meant for the title of the page and character encoding
(how the computer understands a file, or it's head tag version of letters,
numbers, and symbols). The body section is where most of the coding is written.
It's what you can see on the web page.
- Describe the features of a heading element and how it configures the text.

biggest to smallest). Within the heading there is a block of text with extra space above

when you're linking to other websites. When you're linking in the code, you have to have
http in the href tag.
- Describe when to use a relative link. Is the http protocol used in the href value?
- Relative links are used when you're trying to link to web pages already in your site. This
link doesn't need http in the href. Instead, you'll just put the file name in the tag.
