Web Pages aren't just simply created in Word by sticking a few things in and uploading them to the internet but writing HTML which means Hypertext Markup Language. It's sort of like english but uses <h1> and <title> things which are called tags and specify what the text does on a page. Is it big? Is it small? How did that image get there? Well this guide shows you the basic HTML formatting tags and a trick to save money when using images in your descriptions.
