We will learn on what to do first before going directly on makin the scripts of your pages and we will also learn on how to design and organize your site, How to begin to write the contents of your page.
Even though you can just start writing in HTML pages right away, It's better to think first about the design and make a sketch out of your site. In that way, you'll give yourself a direction on what to do next and save time. I personally used this method before going to HTML Editors like Dreamweaver, Intype and many more or you can just use a Notepad on making a web pages and before going to make my pages, the next thing I will do is to look for my resources, For example is the Images like photos, documentary for the contents, links and many more to complete my pages.
Steps in designing your site:
2. Think about your visitors. How can make your website content to be appealing to your visitors. For
example, should you add more graphics to your page or is it more important about the topic you will post?.
3. How many pages will you need for your website? What structure would you like it to have? Do you want
your visitors to go through your site in a particular direction?
4. Sketch out your site in a piece of paper.
5. Make a simple and consistent naming systems for you images, pages, and other external files.

The standard ASCII set contains 128 characters and can be used perfectly well for English documents. However, accents, curly quotes, and many commonly used symbols unfortunately cannot be found in this group. Luckily, HTML can contain any character in the full ISO Latin-1 character set (also known as ISO 8859-1). IN windows and Unix systems, just enter the character in the usual way and it will display properly in the browser.
Watch out! Even though you can type special characters, accents and o on in your Macintosh and DOS based PC, these systems do not use the standard ISO Latin-1 character set for the characters numbered 129-255 and will not display them correctly in the Web page, you must enter these special characters with either name or number codes.
Symbols are case sensitive and more descriptive. Some samples of special character below.

Writing In HTML
You can create an HTML document with any word processor or text editor (for example the notepad and wordpad.), or you can download or buy softwares like dreamweaver or Intype but if you really want to learn HTML without relying on any Web Page Editors then try to use notepad or wordpad for your basics in HTML.
HTML tags are commands written between less than (<) and greater than (>) signs also known as angle brackets, that indicate how the browser should display the text. There are opening and closing versions for many but not all tags, and the affected text is contained within the two tags. Both the opening and closing tags use the same command word but the closing tag caries an initial extra forward slash symbol(/) for example <b>some content</b>.
Attributes in turn often have values. In some cases, you must pick a value from a small group of choices, For example the border attribute for the tag table above can take values of 0-9 or much higher than 9, what ever you want the thickness of the border will be displayed, any other value given will be ignored like (nine).
Other attributes are more strict about the type of values they accept. For example the image tag on the first sample above src attribute only accept URLs for its value.
Generally speaking, values should be enclosed in straight quotation marks "". However, you can omit the quote marks if the value only contains letters (A-Z, a-z), digits and hyphens, or a period. I usually use quotes around URLs to ensure that they're not misinterpret by the server.

One of the W3c's major efforts at peace keeping was to develop Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), a system that separates the content of a page (written in HTML) from the format written in CSS and in so doing allows for more complete control over the design of a Web page while keeping the page universal. In addition, CSS can be applied to several pages at once, Helping the designer save time by storing all the formatting in one file.
That was the theory, anyway. In practice, neither the Microsoft or the Netscape, despite having participated in the development of CSS, has gotten around to fully implementing it in their browsers. In fact, the browser that best supports CSS is a newcomer to the battle: Opera, developed in Norway by a company whose chief technical officer is Hakon Lie, one of the major forces behind CSS at the W3C.
The lack of universal support for CSS has not discouraged designers from using it, however. CSS's powerful formatting and layout capabilities have attracted designers in much the same way that Netscape's extensions did in their day. With much the same problems pages that work only on some browsers and that completely break down in others..
But in todays browser I think almost all browser already supports CSS.
