Basic Blank Page

Copy and paste into a blank page, then change the the text in red to meet your needs.

The script below provides a blank page. All HTML pages have three four important sections.

These are :

  • HTML - The <html> mark-up encloses the whole page.
  • HEAD - The <head> mark-up encloses header data. The contents are not visible to the users.
  • TITLE - The <title> mark-up encloses the page title. This is title you see in the title bar of your internet browser.
  • BODY - The <body> mark-up encloses the visible page contents.

All mark-ups must have a start and end mark-up. They can be in either upper of lower case. The important thing is that they are present and  must be spelt correctly.

There are several text formatting mark-ups that are used to set out your page.

The most common ones are as follows:

  • <h1></h1>, <h2></h2>, <h3></h3>, <h4></h4> - These header mark-ups are used for titles. 
  • <p></p> - The paragraph mark-ups enclosed paragraph blocks of text.
  • <br> - The line break mark-up is used to start a new line. It does not have a closing markup.

Many search engines will identify the page by the contents of the keyword list "software, hardware, scripts"

The default fonts can be set once at the top of the page by using "styles". see the style page for more details.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html">
<meta name="description" content="html scripting help">
<meta name="keywords" content="software, html scripts">
<title>ByWebSite Script Sample - Basic Page</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>ByWebSite Script Sample - Basic Page</h1>
<p>Welcome</p>
<p>For multiple spaces use multiple "&amp;nbsp;" markups to insert more than one space.<br>
Hence 5 spaces between the angles >&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;< </p>
</body>
</html>
