Learning Html
This is the second section on how to create a web page.

This section concerns the <head> element.

Below the <html> tag type in: <head> and a few lines below that type in </head>

Between the <head> and </head> tags place the <title> and </title> tags.

Other elements that can be placed between the <head> elements include:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<META NAME="KeyWords" CONTENT=" type words for search engine look-up here ">
<META NAME="description" Content=" type the description of your page here ">

The <head> tags contain the header information that many browsers
use to format the pages, along with important information that search engines use.

The <title> elements contains the title that the top of the browser will display.
The title on this page is "html/head_1.html: www.erichuff.net: Learning HTML"
(Only the text in green, not the quotes).

The first <meta> tag simply informs the browser what to expect on the web
page (text & html) and what character set to use (in most cases it is standard
iso-8859-1). For the technical reasons behind all of this (which this site won't
be going into), visit this section of the W3 Website.

The other <meta> tags contain information that search engines will use to identify
and describe the contents of your web page. These tags are not necessary if you
do not plan to submit your page to a search engine.

Your page should now look something like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title> type title here </title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<META NAME="KeyWords" CONTENT=" type words for search engine look-up here ">
<META NAME="description" Content=" type the description of your page here ">
</head>
</html>
