The HTML or the Hyper Text Markup Language is the main language for creating the sites, forums, portals, etc.
Without HTML we cannot create nothing from them!
HTML is a simple language it's very easy!
For writing a HTML code, it must began with the tag (<,> and it must and with these tags <,>)
The first tag in HTML lounge is this tag "<html> and </html>..
The most useful editor for HTML language is Notepad the editors which are WYSIWYG!
Don't use editors like Wordpad, or Microsoft Word, Exel, Access and etc...
Some of other prefer editors are Dreamweaver and Microsoft Front Page!
A HTML document began with the "<html>" tag and end with the "</html>" tags!
Be careful, at the end of the tag don't forget to put <"/"> the slash, but in the begun don't put the "<>" slash!
