How to Use Notepad/SimpleText To Create Simple Web Pages

To create stunning web pages, you need nothing more than Notepad (Windows) or SimpleText (Macintosh). In fact, you don't even need to know anything about HTML to create a web page right now! Don't believe me? 

Try It!

  1. Launch Notepad or SimpleText and create a new document.
  2. Type the following: HTML is fun!
  3. Save the document as test1.html to some place logical, like the desktop.
  4. Open a new window in your web browser.
  5. From the "File" menu, select "Open" then locate your test1.html file where you saved it.
  6. Click "Open" again if necessary (Windows) and enjoy!

Anything you type into a text file will display on your computer through the browser, provided you add the ".html" or ".htm" to the end of the file name.
