HTML Basics – Hello World Level 1 HTML Markup

Welcome to html basics. This is my first leg at learning html markup and web development as I undertake the Mozilla p2p challenge:

HTML Basics – The Markup Example


<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Hello World Mozilla!</title>
<h1>Welcome to HTML Basics – Simple Developer Blog!</h1>
<p>Thank you for visiting my blog! I created this blog
so I could follow along with my P2P programming challenge
over at Mozilla Developer network. Remember you can easily
join the community as well and start coding with us!</p>

<p>Thanks again and hope to see you again in the upcoming html basics posts! Remember this is
the first html markup that I have written on this blog – I
have used html before, including the advanced html5 itself.

Let us get moving, shall we?</p>


The outcome of viewing the above markup on a browser is shown below:

The photo below this line shows a handwritten html code as required by the challenge!

It is as simple as that!

You can play around with this example if this is your first introduction to html basics. It is actually fun if you try it. I found out once I left the computer and wrote things by hand as you can see in the image above!

    Awesome entry you got here. You really broke it down accompanied with screenshots. I have to admit that as a long-time web designer I actually had difficulty writing HTML code by hand, not to mention the new DOCTYPE tag that’s being used by this challenge (HTML5 — I’m an old school girl who’s still stuck with the soon-to-be (?) deprecated xHTML).

    Hope you can visit my blog also – 🙂
