What are the different text types with Html?

Hello everyone! Today we will start with the very basics of Html! You will learn how to create text items on your beautiful webpages.

Firstly, you need to know that the main text items on HTML are paragraphs and titles. As HTML is very intuitive, the tags have a lot in common with the real words.

For normal text paragraphs on your webpage, you should use the <p> tag. It is very easy to use. You open it like this: <p> and close it like this </p>. This tag is used for any text items that are not important lines of your webpage or titles.

Example: <p>This is a paragraph</p>.

For titles or important parts of your webpage, you should use the <h> tag. This tag goes from <h1> up to <h6>. <h1> is the biggest title and <h6> the smallest. You do not need to assign a size to one of these tags as they already come with their own size. If you want to keep the same size but want your text to be an <h1> or <h2> for example, you can do it. This can be useful if you want to write everything in the same size but want your website to be SEO friendly. Effectively, <h1> and <h2> are the first tags being read by search engines. This is why you want to put your important keywords and titles in these tags.

Example: <h1>This is the most important title</h1>.

That is pretty much it about text items in Html! As you can see it is very easy to make text appear on your webpage. You just need to know the tag names and be careful in closing every tag you opened with a backslash before the tag name.

What does CSS stand for? What is it?

You might be wondering why you’ve heard these three letters a lot of times already without even knowing what it means? Well, from now on, you will know everything you need to know on it.

Css is the Cascading Style Sheets language. It is used to style webpages. If you want your website to look professional, you will NEED to use CSS. You will need it to style images with shadows, texts with font-styles and font-colors,  small animations….

CSS needs to be used together with Html. You need to link your Html page to a CSS page so that your CSS code can be understood by the computer.

This language is extremely powerful and is, in my opinion, the easiest coding language out there.
