Creating and publishing Web pages

The easiest way to create a Web page is to use a Web authoring-tool, also called an HTML-authoring tool. One of the more common authoring tools is Dreamweaver, which is available for purchase from Macromedia, many other authoring tools are available. These tools write the HTML code for you as you compose your page. Using them is similar to using a word processor such as Microsoft Word.

As an alternative, you can create Web pages by writing the HTML code yourself in a text editor program such as Notepad. Pointers to learning HTML include Writing HTML: A tutorial for creating Web pages and Getting Started with HTML
