Why do random word get written to the web page in html


#1


I am not stuck on a specific exercise I'm stuck on practicing one using Windows Notepad


I have written random words to test the line spacing in the web page, but I would like to know why do the random words (test line) show up on the webpage at all? Also Why is there a time stamp under the image when I haven't specically told the program to display a time stamp?


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<center><img src = "pirate flag(Using for test).jpg" height = "150", width = "70"/><center><!-- So I think this makes a variable 
and sets the image to that variable, then it sets the size and the position of the image on the web browser--> 

<!-- remmber to comment-->
Test line
<br>
<br />  <!--skip line-->
TEST Line <!-- Find out how this is being written in the webbrowser with out a coomand telling it to. -->

You don't have to surround your text in any tags for it to appear, it's just bad formatting if you don't.

Try putting in the boilerplate code

<html> 
<head>
</head>
<body>

// Your code here

</body> 
</html>

If that doesn't fix it then I have no other suggestions; however, you could always test it and find out on your own.
