I think you need HTML help before you start helping others.

HTML (http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp)
CSS (http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp)

well not a site review so a few things about it jump out at me as the wrong way to do it. In your lists page. You have < li > withy a space. Granted it is so that the browser will not render the less tahn/greater than. You should write it as &lt;li&gt; so that the page still displays it correctly. You tell your visitor to "enter the following into your document.... " . If they do so they will not get what you are trying to get them to achieve because of the spaces.

In your Definition Lists:

you have this as the outcome of your code:


Pick Me Because I'm #1
No Pick Me!! 2 is cooler


and this is the code you listed for it:


< dl >
< dt > < b > Choose Me!! < / b > < / dt >
< dd > Because I am #1!!! < / dd >
< dt > < b > No Choose Me!! < / b > < / dt >
< dd > #2 is cooler!! < / dd >


besdies the spaces in it will fail in any broowser can you also see the the disscrepencies in it?

If you can't let me tell you you have 'pick me' as the outcome text and 'choose me' as the coded text.

If I was a total beginner at HTML and was looking for your site for guidance, I would be comletely confused when I copied what you said and uploaded it and it didn't work.

No one will use that site until you sort it out, IMO.

There is some information for beginners but they may think about visiting again because you offer help for HTML but you didn't make your website yourself you used a template but it could have some really useful information in the future.

I do know HTML this is a site for beginners.

You may know how to use HTML, but you are using poor coding practices and depreciated tags (<font> for example).

An example of your poor coding practices, emphasis mine:


< html >
< head >
< title > My First Page < / title >
< / head >
< body bg color= black > < body text= white >
< center > Welcome to my website. This is my first page. < / center >
< a href= www.google.com >Google < / a >
< img src= Image Hyperlink Here >
< / body >
< / html >


Aside from the spaces in the code (which is a no, no), you have two body tags and one closing body tag. Now, you only need one body, if you have any more then you are doing something wrong. Also, you need quotes around attributes in tags.

E.g.


<a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

< html >
< head >
< title > My First Page < / title >
< / head >
< body bg color= black > < body text= white >
< center > Welcome to my website. This is my first page. < / center >
< / body >
< / html >

Should be...



<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<title>My First Page</title>

<style type="text/css">
body {
text-align: center;
color: #FFF;
background-color: #000;
}
</style>

</head>

<body>
<p>Welcome to my website. This is my first page.</p>
</body>

</html>

Now that's better isn't it! ;)
