HTML – What You Need to Know About HTML in Blogging

HTML stands for "Hyper Text Mark-up Language". HTML is the bricks and mortar of the WWW. Without HTML the World Wide Web could not have become as important as it is today. HTML is a document formatting language common the all computers on the WWW. HTML permits cross platform communication between Macs, Apples, Suns, PCs and others to view a document in a similar way.
Every webpage that you visit uses HTML in some way; you can view the HTML code behind a website in Internet Explorer by selecting:
View │ Source.
HTML has two sections, the "Head" section and the "Body" section.
The head section is where the information about the web page is put for the browser. This has nothing to do with the heading that you want to see on your web page. Things that can be stored in the head section include Keywords for search engines or the title of your webpage.
The body section is where the web page is coded. This is where you put the information for your web page.

Formatting
One of the most frustrating parts of HTML for beginners is simple formatting, such as starting a new sentence on a new line, or aligning text to the left, right or middle. I’m now going to show you the basics of formatting. - This is used for when you would like to start a new paragraph

- A page break, this is used for starting a new line
Text to be centered here

Text to be aligned left here
Text to be aligned right here
This is for font size.
Your text goes here
The codes below are for formatting such as bold, italics and underlining
Look at me I’m Bold
Look at me I’m Italic
Look at me I’m Underlined
I guess this is where I have to stop for now.
