HTML stands for hyper-text markup language (not like you will need to remember that at all), and it is what makes up the entire Web. If you've ever right-clicked on a web page, and went to view the source hidden under the skin, you would have seen the HTML code that makes the page. You can view the source of this website (or *any* website for that matter) by pressing CTRL+U on a Windows computer, if you're not using Windows, then you're weird. At first, HTML may seem complicated, but this guide will show you through the basic steps.
Now, this is where the fun really starts, white boy. Time to break-down all of the HTML1 tags. . .
Links are fairly easy to get a hold of, to make one, simply make something tat looks like this;
Very cool, because of this, what you made should look like this;
A link that has the full URL is called an absolute link, a common error seen is not linking the HTTP part, not including that will instead lead the user to a 404 page. Jolly good fun. If you want to be hot shit, you can so something that is called a relative link. The long and short is that rather than writing something like this;
You would instead write something that looks like this;
But, unless a website has WorldWideWeb.html (or another page name) in it, this link will lead you to a 404 error, meaning that the page was not found. There are other things that you might like to know, such as if you put a link that looks like this, dot dot dot;
(Note the slash ("/")) Then the link will go to the bottom (lol) of the tree root. So even if the link was used on a tree root that looked something like this;
Then the link with the slash will go to http://owlman.rf.gd/WorldWideWeb.html and not http://owlman.rf.gd/html/3/WorldWideWeb.html, because God hates you.
The HTML <ADDRESS> tag makes the "address" element, this represents an address in an HTML document. By this, it means it tells the viewer to who made what on a certain page used on a website, for example, all of the guide pages on this site give credit to Clive Python, who wrote this guide in 2019.
To use this tag, you would do this. . .
As a result of this, the webpage will appear as such;This page was made by Arnold J. Rimmer
You would think that as the text in-between the ADDRESS tag is in italics, then this tag could be used as a substitute for the <EM> tag, well, what's annoying is that no, this won't work well, as every time you use the ADDRESS tag, it makes a new line in your text. So unless youwant to make a new line whenever you want to use italics, then you might like to use a substitute such as *doing this* or _even this_. This tag is not really used any more all that much, it has in-part been taken-over by the <em> TAG, but it is still useful in some places.
To use this tag, simple write something that looks like this;
In the case of this page, you can see what the title of it is by looking at the very top of it, you should see it is called "Part III: Something To Do With HTML | A Bad Guide To HTML1". Almost all web browsers, old and new, support some form of the title tag (or at lest on desktop, on mobiles they might just show the URL of the page, and not the actual title itself).
