Hello World!


My name is Amy Hissom and this is my first Web page. I coded it manually. In other words, I did not use a "What You See Is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) application. It is best to learn what is behind a webpage by learning the basic code. This will help you understand how a Web page really works.

A Place I would Like To Visit

This Web Page shows my understanding of basic HTML elements, tags, and attributes. By manually coding this page, I know how to format paragraphs, headings, ordered and unordered lists, and how to structure a Web page's layout. I can't wait to see how this page turns out once I have learned more! I hope you enjoyed viewing it!
