You don’t need any tools to learn HTML at W3Schools.
- You don’t need any HTML editor
- You don’t need a web server
- You don’t need a web site
In this tutorial we use a plain text editor (like Notepad) to edit HTML. We believe this is the best way to learn HTML.
However, professional web developers often prefer HTML editors like FrontPage or Dreamweaver, instead of writing plain text.
Create Your Own Test Web
If you just want to learn HTML, skip the rest of this chapter.
If you want to create a test page on your own computer, just copy the 3 files below to your desktop.
(Right click on each link, and select “save target as” or “save link as”)
After you have copied the files, you can double-click on the file called “mainpage.htm” and see your first web site in action.
Use Your Test Web For Learning
For writing a HTML code u need a notepad and type HTML codes and save it with extension of .html and execute(open the file) using web browser(Like Internet explorer, Mozilla,etc.,)
Note: If your test web contains HTML markup tags you have not learned, don’t panic. You will learn all about it in the next chapters.
.HTM or .HTML File Extension?
When you save an HTML file, you can use either the .htm or the .html file extension. We use .htm in our examples. It is a habit from the past, when the software only allowed three letters in file extensions.
With new software it is perfectly safe to use .html.
