In the context of this exercise, introducing HTML, how can I start writing my own HTML files?
You can write your own HTML files using a text editor, a code editor, or an integrated development environment (IDE).
One thing to keep in mind when writing and creating your own HTML files is that the file name must end with the extension
.html, for example like
index.html, in order to work.
Some common text editors are Notepad on Windows, or TextEdit on MacOS.
Code editors are usually preferred over text editors because they provide useful features like autocomplete and syntax coloring.
Some popular code editors are Sublime, Atom, and Notepad++.
Online Code editor
There are also online code editors available which let you share and edit your code, and even run your code in the browser.
These include JSFiddle, CodePen, and JS Bin.
Integrated Development Environments (IDE’s)
One useful function of IDE’s is that they can be used for testing and debugging your code.
Some IDE’s include Microsoft Visual Studio, Eclipse, and Adobe Dreamweaver.
