Using the primary HTML tags, mentioned in
Chapter 3, you are now ready to create your first Web page.
Step 1 Open up a
text editor (SimpleText for Mac or Notepad for Windows)
Step 2 Enter the following:
<title> This is my first web page</title>
Hello world. This is my first web page. There's more to come.
Step 3 Save the document as: firstpage.html
Your file can be saved as either an htm or html file. Remember to save your document on
the computer in a place that you can find it again.
Step 4 To preview your new document, open
Netscape Navigator. On the tool bar (located up near the top of the browser):
Select File menu.
Select Open Page
A dialogue box appears. Select Choose File
Go to where you saved your file, click on it. This will bring you

this in your browser.
