Hyper Text Markup Language or HTML is the basic language of all things on the Internet. 

Anyone interested in learning how to create a website will need to understand this basic language that is the basic structure for everything you see online. 

Those services pitching easy to build websites using their pre-made sites are limited and won’t teach you anything about the actual building of websites. 

Although HTML looks like a foreign language at first, learning the basic language will quickly lead to de-mystifying it all. 

A solid way to start learning is from Mozilla’s ‘Webmaker’ tools that allow you to take sample sites and play with them to see what will happen. 

Experimenting with code is a really good way to start learning web skills and Webmaker allows you to tinker with websites without any consequences. 

Getting a handle on HTML has become a vital skill for everyone, especially our kids and Mozilla wants to help millions move from simply using the Internet to helping to creating it. 

The Webmaker project located at https://thimble.mozilla.org is an excellent place for anyone with the desire to learn more about how the Internet really works to get started.
