    Default I need help from someone who is really good at coding.
    Ok I am trying to learn wow to code and i need help with something.
    OK here is what I got so far
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    
    <html>
    
    <head>
    	<title>My first web page</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    	This is my first web page
    </body>
    
    </html>
    When I open it in a web browser (firefox for example) I see all of this text. Is that what I am supposed to see? Or did I do something wrong? And please don't bash on me for trying.
    Oh and by the way in the URL bar it says file:///Users/zacharyfox/Desktop/html/myfirsthomepage.html

    Haha. Oh the joys of learning HTML
    spent hours a day playing around with these codes when I was 10 or 11

    You should be able to see "This is my first web page" inside the browser (anything that's between the body tags)
    "My first web page" should appear at the bar at the top of the browser (the things between the title tags)

    This isn't really anything to do with the iPhone - there are plenty of html guides on the internet but I just copied your code into notepad, saved it and it works.
    Make sure you have saved it with and html extension, I'm guessing you've saved it with .txt at the end - make sure you can view extensions and you will probably find it's got .html.txt

    @Confucious That's what I thought at first too but look at the file name, it says "myfirsthomepage.html" and not "myfirsthomepage.html.txt" which it would say if he saved it with .txt
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    If you don't show file extensions that's what it would show....

    Ok now my code looks like this.
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    
    <html>
    
    <head>
    	<title>My first web page</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    	<h1>My first web page</h1>
    
    	<h2>What this is</h2>
    	<p>A simple page put together using HTML</p>
          <p>This is my first web page<p>
          <p>How exciting!<p>
          <p>Yes, that <em>is</em> what I said. How <strong>very</strong>
    exciting.</p>
    <ul>
    		<li>To learn HTML</li>
    		<li>To show off</li>
    		<li>Because I've fallen in love with my computer and want to give her some HTML loving.</li>
    	</ul>
    
    </body>
    
    </html>
    here is a screen shot of what my screen looks like when I open it (And it is .html)

    When I copy and paste your text into notepad and save as an html file it displays correctly.

    But this is way OT and if you want more help I suggest you find an html forum.

    Yeah, you probably did save it with the wrong extension. All the codes shouldn't be on the page and your code looks fine.

    Even in a browser? Hmm...

    LMAO. Don't you love it when people don't get the "go somewhere else" ?

    @cellmate75 this is an iPhone forum, HTML has very little to do with the iPhone, take your question somewhere else please

    What on earth have you written that in!

    Have you seen all the junk in there? If you are going to code yourself use notepad or something that doesn't add all it's own code that screws your code up.

    Open your file in notepad (or whatever the Mac equivalent is) and you will see what I mean.

    Now go and find an HTML forum.

    @cellmate75 this is an iPhone forum, HTML has very little to do with the iPhone, take your question somewhere else please
    NimbleKit - Smart kit for fast iPhone apps development

    Actually there is a whole Xcode plug in that involves HTML coding to develop apps so HTML is legit questions.

    HTML web apps for the iPhone is still a huge market for the phone if not better since there is no restrictions for development and what you can do.

    Let the kid learn, if people don't want to help just stay quiet and post in another forum.
