  • Create a Homepage and learn some HTML. Building your homepage requires that you write HTML code. The two easiest ways to learn how to write HTML code is to see it in action. First, use View, Source to see the code of the page you are viewing. Second, find what you want to do on this page and then use View, Source to see how to write that HTML code. Now there are other ways to learn code by reading online manuals to learn to write HTML. And of course you could buy a book. Then you may graduate to an elite web page creation software.
