hoe to get to html
Such a bad was to start. I got Stefan Mischook'ss video tutorial "Killer Web Design". I am on the first tutorial and copied the first web page. Now how do I get the progam to appear as a web page. I'm sorry about the first posting. Hopfully I learned my lesson

Re: hoe to get to html
What 'program' are you trying to get to appear as a webpage - can you give some more detail on what exactly you did and are now trying to do next?

Re: hoe to get to html
Ok, Tech speak 101. There are allot of terms in IT and it can get confusing when the wrong ones are used. You just have to get used to them.
Program - as in "Now how do I get the program to appear as a web page." A program is a bundled set of "scripts" that serve a purpose/action. Your browser is a program, your operating system is a type of program in theory. Word, dreamwever, messenger, Quicktime, notepad... are all programs.
Code - Human readable text/symbol that tell a computer or server what to do. HTML is a code, although technically it is markup, hence the M in HTML. We code web pages. You have a HTML file with code on it.
Webpage - often used for the code file, it generally means what the browser shows you. The web browser looks at your code and follows the instructions which it then shows you as a web page.
Now how do I get the progam to appear as a web page.So now from what I have explained, what I am guessing you mean is "Now how do I get the code to appear as a web page"
if it is saved as a .html or .htm file, you can double click it and your default browser should open it up.
If not you can go to the menu of the browser / File / Open File / and tell it which file on your computer to open.
Feel free to ask about and terms used that you do not understand. It is important for clarity to use the right terms... but we all started at some point and had to learn them too, so we will not think you dumb.
