HTML Codes

The second Essential Tool you need to build a great website is knowledge of Learn some basic HTML Codes to use on your website.

Webpages are written in a computer language called HTML, which stands for Hypertext Markup Language. Don't get scared, it looks just like English, with some funny symbols peppered here and there. As mentioned in the previous page, you need to learn coding. To be exact, Learn some basic HTML Codes to use on your website. HTML Codes are instructions you tell the Internet how you want to format your webpages. The basic HTML codes you need to know are:

  1. Title
  2. Body
  3. Head
  4. Html
  5. Headers (H1, H2, H3, etc.)
  6. Bold
  7. Italic
  8. Underline
  9. Hyperlink
  10. Table
In addition to the above, it would do you good to learn how to format size and colour of your font, background, border. More advanced features such as CSS would be helpful too, but are still all together very easy, that even a dummy could learn it (so if you have to, find a book for dummies and learn all about it). You can also go online to sites such as to learn it yourself. If opening a book induces sleep, I would suggest that you enrol to a basic html course.

By now, I guess you have realised that HappyJoblessGuy is serious that you can earn an income without holding a job, if you seriously apply yourself to it. Also, you would nothing nowhere in this website will you hear me saying, "Click here to pay me $19.95 and I promise you'd start earning $1000 per day with your eyes closed". It won't happen here, because this website promises to be free. One day, you will be earning the $1000 per day from your web, and you'd look back and be thankful that I forced you to learn dry stuff like HTML Codes!

When I first started building websites in 1997, I used a "What You See Is What You Get" Page Editor. For the first one year or so, I tried to avoid learning and memorising Learn some basic HTML Codes to use on your website. But I realised that was really a cumbersome way to learn. When you get the software to do things for you, it often makes decisions on your behalf. And you don't want that. So I bit the bullet and learned it. I don't need to be a website wiz, I just need to know enough of the basic stuff to get me going.
