Notes About Your Personal Web Space:

 

Creating Your Web Site:

As mentioned above you can use any editor to create web pages.  There are many good references on the Internet about HTML or web page design.  One good place to start is the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide. These are the people who are helping develop the standards for communicating and working over the Internet.

As you create your first page to publish be sure to name it "index.htm" or "index.html".   Otherwise the web server will not know where to start when displaying your site to visitors.
