I’ll start with the typical “Hello world” example that starts every programming language tutorial. Open up your favorite editor (yes, even notepad) and write the following code (or copy and paste if you are as lazy as I am):
<html> <head> <title>Hello world</title> </head> <body> <script> alert("Hello World"); </script> </body> </html>
Save the file as “hello.html” (or any name you want but end it with “html”). Double click on the file and this should open up a browse window showing a dialog with the text “Hello World”. Something like this:
In the next tutorial I will start doing real stuff that is a bit more useful than this but I wanted to show here how it is very easy to get started. See you next time!
