Setting up your website
In order to begin creating your website you have to first choose a text editor. If you have a Mac you can use TextEdit. If you have a PC, Notepad comes standard. Thanks to Jessica I will be using TextMate which is a text editor made specially for developers.
So open up the text editor of your choice and make sure that it is set to a plain text format (not necessary if using TextMate)
Save the file as “index.html” to a folder called “learnwithjeff.”
Now, try creating a file like the one I did in my previous post. Once you have finished open the file using your browser and check out your first HTML website!
