HTML Course | First Web Page | Printing Hello World

Course Navigation

So far, we already have learned about the structure of an HTML document, tags etc. Let us use this knowledge to create our first web page which will print the text “Hello World!” on the screen.

Open your text editor, and type the below code in it and save it with the name “index.html”:

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link

code

<!DOCTYPE html>
  
<html>
    <head>
        <title>
            First Web Page
        </title>
    </head>
  
    <body>
        Hello World!
    </body>
</html>

On opening the file in a web browser, you will see the below output:

Yes, it’s that easy to print anything on the Web Page. You don’t need to compile your HTML code to run it in an Web Page. As HTML is an scripting language, you can simply change your code and hit the referesh button and the changes will be reflected to your Web page immediately.



Make “Hello World!” Bigger: The text “Hello World!” seems to appear small. Let us make it look a bit more bigger.

We have seen usage of <h1/> tags in our previous articles. This is a heading tag in HTML which is used to represent headings in a Web Page.

Heading Tags: There are six levels of headings defined by HTML. These six heading
elements are H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, and H6; with H1 being the highest level and H6 the least.

Let us use these six different Heading tags separately to print “Hello World!” and see the difference. Modify your code in index.html with the below code:

    <body>
        <h1>Hello World!</h1>
        <h2>Hello World!</h2>
        <h3>Hello World!</h3>
        <h4>Hello World!</h4>
        <h5>Hello World!</h5>
        <h6>Hello World!</h6>
    </body>
</html>

On refreshing the web page you will see the output will change to:
