Fixed an error I discovered on the HTML for Starters Chapter 4 page. Two and a half years ago when I put all the images on this site in a separate directory, I used "search and replace" to add the directory to the file name of every image. In this tutorial where I had noted that file names are case sensitive and showed examples, all the file names where changed to lower case as a result.

I finally wrote a page explaining how to put images on a page. Chapter 4, HTML for Starters. (For obvious reasons, this page will not be included in the text-only version.)

Wrote Body Attributes, listing the attributes of the <BODY> tag. Linked to Chapter 1, HTML for Starters.

Corrected mistakes in top-of-page navigation links as a result of copying and pasting.

Introduction of "HTML for People Who Want to Learn" with HTML for Starters

November 15, 1997
"HTML for Beginners" was born



"HTML for Beginners" had its start on November 15, 1997.  I, Tim Rivera, had just signed up for a Web page from GeoCities, and I had no idea about what to put on my page.  I had just learned the basics of HTML, and I decided to make my page an HTML tutorial.  I was interested in learning HTML, and I wanted other people to be able to learn HTML without having to search the Web.  Of course, that was before I realized that there are millions of HTML guides all over the Web.

As I continued to learn more about HTML, I would include what I learned on my page.  Within a month, the page was really long and I decided it was time to make some changes.  That is how "HTML for People Who Want to Learn" came to be.  I spent the last week of December '97 totally reconstructing "HTML for Beginners", and renamed it "HTML for Starters".  I then started working on creating tutorials for lists, tables, and frames. The frames tutorial is among the list of things that will be on this site eventually.
