The following tags depict the official basic HyperText Markup Language
you should use for scripting / creating your very own Web site pages.
This page is especially beneficial for those using AOL's proprietary browser
which unfortunately doesn't allow its members to view the source document of a
selected / visited site while surfing the Net; AOL instead makes their members
save the page as a file and then read its text later off-line! ... That is until ...
Now you will be able to L[animated graphical eyes]K AROUND and see what a page's script might
look like regardless of which browser you are using. Hope this helps :) Phil Viger

My Initial HTML Resources

[Lemay's Teach Yourself HTML book] ... [The Net Magazine (4/96)]

Although it's true you can get some idea of how HTML works by looking at a page's script through your browser's "view source" function, I'm a strong advocate for taking the time to read up on anything that interests you so that you can get a real understanding and appreciation of it.

I learned all about the HyperText Markup Language in the spring of 1996 when I purchased (and thoroughly utilized) Laura Lemay's "Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML In A Week" book packaged in Sams Net "Web Page Construction Kit", AND "The Net" Magazine April 96 issue which featured 31 in-depth pages on "How To Build A (Better) Web Page."
