One thing that is the foundation of all webpages is the language of HTML. I said in an article that learning HTML is as important as learning the ABCs.
Sure in 2009, we have blog software that automatically generates the links, underlines and italics we need at the right place at the right time, but you never know when you might need to look under the hood to fix or make a work around to illustrate, underline or bring emphasis to some text.
For example, if you belong to a forum, the rules as to what types of tags you can include in your post are almost always included either at the top of the form or via a link.
Here are some basic HTML Tags or building blocks for webpages:
– Paragraph Tag
or the “Old school” way
– Bold tag
<a href="http://www.website.com"> Website Address</a>
With these basic HTML tags, anyone should be able to give any article or submission an extra boost, just by getting under the hood and applying a little elbow grease.
