As you have already found out HTML is a set of tags normally containing 2 parts - an opening tag and a closing tag. These are just instructions telling the browser what to do. Take a look at the following code.
03: <title>your title</title>
Look for the matching opening and closing tags. Lets go through the pairs in detail.
line 01 & line 10 <html> </html> Line 01 tells the browser we are opening a page containing HTML - line 10 closes the tag.
line 02 & line 04 <head> </head> any tags you use between the <head> </head> tags does not appear in the browser window.
This section of a document is normally where you would place any scripts, style sheets or search engine information. As you are just starting out you don't have to worry about that just now.
line 03 <title> </title> what you place between the <title> </title> tags appears in the browsers title bar at the top of the window.
line 05 & line 09 <body> </body> anything you place between the <body> </body> will appear in the browser window. All formatting, text, images get placed between the <body> </body> tags.
Use the code above (without the line numbers) as a template for all your pages remembering to place your content between the <body> </body> tags.
In part 3 we will dig a wee bit deeper into tag attributes.
