Lesson 1.1

Here is a basic HTML 5 skeleton. There are more advanced ones available such as the well-known "HTML 5 Boilerplate," but we will get to that later in the course.

<html lang="en-US">
<!-- The head is a special element that does not display within the 
browser window (which is not the same as the "header" element) -->
<!-- You need to declare your character set at the start of the head, 
comment it out and see the character get rendered as the character code  -->
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>Change Me</title>
<!-- The body element contains everything that displays within the browser window -->
  <h1>A Heading ☯</h1>
  <p>A paragraph</p>
  <p>A word like "pays" is a verb in English but is a noun in French.</p>
