Write HTML Using Notepad or TextEdit

HTML can be edited by using a professional HTML editor like:

  • Adobe Dreamweaver

Step 1: Open Notepad

To open Notepad in Windows 7 or earlier:

Click Start (bottom left on your screen). Click All Programs. Click Accessories. Click Notepad.

To open Notepad in Windows 8 or later:

Open the Start Screen (the window symbol at the bottom left on your screen). Type Notepad.


Step 2: Write Some HTML

Write or copy some HTML into Notepad.

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<p>My first paragraph.</p>

</body>
</html>
