LEARNING HTML IS LIKE LEARNING TO RIDE A BICYCLE.
YOU CANNOT LEARN HOW BY READING OR WATCHING.
YOU HAVE TO JUMP ON AND DO IT!
Here you will learn by doing.
When you actually DO it you will be surprised how fast you catch on.
Here you will learn how to make Italic and Bold words or sentences, how to

to Notepad or other text editor. You can then copy from Notepad to your Online
Editor in AOL, ATT PWP, Tripod, etc., or any other Webpage space you may be
using. Or upload as an index.html or othername.html file by FTP, once you learn how.

After you unzip, Open the index.html file. I have a shortcut to the index.html on my
Desktop. The other files in the folder are used by the index.html.)
Help for using Tables, including Tables for Border Backgrounds and Triple Backgrounds
