Your next step is going to be building content into your website by entering text between the following two HTML tags:

  • <H1> </H1>
  • <p> </p>

Close your browser which had your webpage and return to your notepad file which you should still have open in your task bar.

You will label a heading for a block of text between the opening <H1> tag and the closing </H1> tag. It will look something like what is seen below, replacing the words "My Heading" for whatever you want your heading label to be:

<H1> My Heading </H1>

You will do the same thing with the paragraph tag, entering a paragraph of text between the opening <p> tag and the closing </p> tag.

<p> This where you will type a block of text that you want to appear on your webpage </p>

Your notepad should look like the below screen shot:

Building Content into an HTML Document

Next, you will click File > Save and your changes will be updated. Navigate to where your webpage was saved. If you followed the recommendation above, it will be in a folder called "My Website" in your My Documents folder or a similar place. Click on the internet explorer icon labeled 'My Webpage" and you should see the following:
