  1. Open up Notepad [Start, Programs, Accessories]
  2. Open Internet Explorer [or whichever browser you prefer to use]
    It is usual to work with both applications open - the text editor to work in and the browser to check progress
  3. Copy the text below [between the broad blue lines] into your text editor.
  4. Save the file [suggested name basic1.htm]. It is vital to save the file with the extension .htm [or .html] - it will not open in a browser as a web page without it. In general, do not use spaces in your filenames.
  5. Open the file in your browser.
