This is known as a closing tag. This closes the body section. Now we repeat this for the HTML tag. Note that we are closing our tags in reverse order to how we opened them. Another way to think of this is that the tags bracket our content symmetrically.
This closes the HTML document. This is not properly formed code. We do have a tutorial explaining how to format code properly, or at least to our own standards, so that our websites are easy to read and legible to other people. But for now, we're just focused on creating a very basic web page.
We will add a period or dot character and then type in either "htm" or "html". The full file name will read, "visihtml.html". As this is a basic tutorial, we are going to go ahead and leave it as "html" to make it easy to remember what this is.
We will be asked, "How do you want to open this type of file (.html)?". Let's choose Firefox for this tutorial, as it's one of the more picky browsers about code being formatted properly. Click the browser of choice.
The page we created is an actual web page that we just launched in the Firefox browser. Ours says, "VisiHow is Awesome!". Close the Firefox window when ready using the red "x" in the top right-hand corner.
This concludes our tutorial on creating your first, and most basic, web page in Windows 8 with Notepad
