Whether you deliver them statically or via scripts, unencrypted or via a secure server, websites are typically composed of documents (web pages) created in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). This section serves as a brief introduction to the design of web pages, but it's far from a complete guide. For more information, consult a tutorial such as http://www.cwru.edu/help/introHTML/toc.html or http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/tut/. The official guide to HTML is available at http://www.w3.org/MarkUp; consult this page for many links to additional information. As a general rule, you have two choices for how to create web pages: Use an HTML editor or HTML export feature in a program designed for the task or create an HTML file "by hand" using an ordinary text editor.
