Building a web site from scratch. Part I: Creating a web site.
In this chapter we will create a web site on your computer.

Create a new folder on your computer (a new folder on your desktop is OK).
Name the new folder demoweb.
Now you have a local web site.

|After you have saved the file, you can open it in your browser, and see how it runs.|
In the demoweb folder, create a new file named about.html.

The files above contain headings <h1> and a paragraphs <p>. Please feel free to edit the content.
