Instructions for Creating and Publishing your Personal Home Page at IU Creating your Personal Home Page (home.html) A PHP is a document or file. It’s name must be home.html . This document contains text (the content to be displayed) and codes that tell the web browser client (IE or Firefox) how to display the text.

The HEAD also contains the TITLE of the document, which is displayed in the title-bar area of the browser. The BODY contains the text that is to be displayed in the browser window, also with the tags which describe how the text is to be displayed. Use the text editor (Notepad) to type in the text and the tags into a document. Save the document as a plain text file with the name
