HTML Handout

This document accompanies the HTML for the English Major tutorial. To best use this handout, view its source and compare it to your browser's rendering. If you are using a graphical browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, the AOL Browser, Opera, or Mozilla, look for an option in the "View" menu that says something like "Source," "View Source," or "Source Code," and select it. Then, use your mouse (or, on a PC, hold the Alt key down and press the Tab key) to toggle between the window showing the source code and the window showing the browser. In most setups, you can also print the source code from the window that displays it. Then you will have a paper handout and can compare it to the browser's rendering of the code. The text of this paragraph is enclosed in the tags for the paragraph (or p) element.
