In the previous lesson I talked about 5 different ways to build a website.
Today I’m going to be covering one of those methods in more depth. More specifically, I’m going to show you how to build a website from scratch using HTML without any special tools…
(Watch this video…)
I recommend Notepad++:
NOTE: Regarding my instructions in the video… In order to change the file extension from .txt to .html you must have your file extensions visible.
For Windows XP go to:
Tools >> Folder Options >> Click the “View” tab >> Make sure there is NO checkmark by “Hide extensions for known file types”
For Windows Vista:
1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
2. Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

1) Create a web page using HTML.
The next step will be to upload your new page to the web, and I’ll be covering that in the next lesson.
