Creating Your First Web Page

Once you've installed Notepad++, you'll need copy the following code exactly.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>My first web page</title>
This is my first web page

Now you've done that, create a new folder on your desktop called "mywebsite" (without the quotes) and save the file as "index.html" (without the quotes).

Once saved, locate the file and double click it to open the file in your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox etc).

You should now see your first web page displayed with the text "My first web page"
