HTML Editing - You need an editor to create and update your web pages. You can use a specialty HTML Editor but a plain old text editor, such as Notepad, will also do the job.

A Simple Web Page

Type the following into your text editor and then save it as first.htm:

<title>My First Web Page</title>
<p>Hello World!</p>

Now, use your browser to open the file first.htm. This is what your new page should look like:

Simple Page

That's how easy it is to create a web page with just a text editor. For a more complex example, use your browser to view the source code for this web page (View, Source). This page was created with just a text editor. For more information on using HTML, just search the web for "HTML Tutorial". A good tutorial for beginners is: Dave Raggett's Getting started with HTML.

P.S. The text editor I use is UltraEdit. It has sereved me well for over 6 years.
