<What is HTML?>

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. HTML is a common language used accross the internet - specifically in building and designing WebPages. It is also the language most browsers understand when reading and interpreting the WebPages, therefore making it readable for us.

For simplicity sake, we will refer to HTML in a much easier term to understand - "Tags". Tags travel in "Pairs" (with a few exceptions of course.) - one tag <begining> each desired affect, and the second tag </ending> the action. This done line by line, or section by section. Depending on what you are building

For example -

typing this: <img src="http://www.dbesolutions.com/design.gif">

(This is an image tag, and it travels alone.)

produces this;

Where ever you are building your site on TheWeb - you will be working with a "File Manager." This is located within the site of your HomePage. The File Manager is the location for you to store all of your WebPage files - such as your HomePage.html files, your gif, jpg and jpeg graphic files. Whether you obtain your site thru a free server or a fee-for-service server - there is usually an allocation of space provided with your site to enable you to store all of your files.

Once you have decided on the files you want in your site File Manager, they can be uploaded a couple different ways. In some servers they can be uploaded right from the uploading system located within the site File Manager, or the files can be uploaded thru FTP; File Transfer Protocal. FTP is a separate program designed to send or retrive internet files.

There are many free FTP programs for download at: http://www.download.com download.com - click here

When you put in a formula to call out an image, you will be calling an image from your own site. Tapping into other sites for images is considered unethical (unless you have permission) - so it is recommended that use your own graphics from your own site. There are many copyright free graphics located on TheWeb and are free for the taking. Below are links to free graphic sites.
