« HTML101 Part 3
As you learned in Part 1 of this series, an HTML tag specifies the meaning of some content. Oftentimes though, the tag itself does not provide enough information, so HTML tags have what are called attributes, which can be seen as a way of specifying configuration options for that tag.

« HTML101 Part 1 || HTML101 Part 3 »
Welcome back to HTML Bootcamp, recruit. Today we will be covering editing environments, setting up your very first HTML document and testing it in a web browser. So let’s not waste any time and get down to business!
When you’re on the battlefield you need to be comfortable with your equipment and know how to use it. If your helmet is too big for you or your rifle’s strap is broken you’re not really performing the way you should. The same principal applies to coding. If your editing environment causes you more headaches than anything else you’re not really performing at maximum capacity. So making the right choice when it comes to which editor you use is not something to be taken lightly.
Initially you might be able to get away with using your operating system’s standard text editor, like Notepad on Microsoft Windows, but later you’ll want to pick the right tools to make your job easier. When you reach that point you can go one of two routes.
