Welcome to the Fan Sites Forum Official HTML Discussion Thread. This is the first in a series of threads I plan on introducing, with the discretion of our forum Moderator, jedimasterbac. Here goes: What is HTML? HyperText Markup Language - HTML - is perhaps the most popular language used in the creation of web pages. There are several versions of HTML, the most recent being HTML 4.01, which is moderated by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). There will be some links later on tin this post that will better explain HTML, as well as give some tutorials and other useful tools. Purpose of this thread This thread is intended to spark discussion about HTML and possibly other coding languages. It is a place where you, as a user, can come in and give your own hints and tips. The biggest benefit I think this thread could have, is be a sort of Question and Answer thread where users can come in and ask questions regarding HTML and your web pages. Remember, do not be afraid to ask a question. Chances are, some other people are wondering the same thing. Helpful Links World Wide Web Consortium Home Page HTML Validator - Make sure your web page follows correct HTML 4.01 guidelines. W3schools.com HTML Tutorial - A very nice tutorial that also has quizzes and tests to see what you know. HTML Wikipedia page - Has the history of HTML as well as more helpful links.
