Learn by Copy
Use the View Source Code option to check out how pages operate. Then Copy, Paste and Adapt ("View" menu and "Page Source" option).
Two of the most important reasons why the World Wide Web took off so rapidly and grew faster and more in months than the internet (and its precursors) did in its 20+ years of existence at that point are:
1) browsers were made so that anyone could view the source code and
2) the HTML source code was simple enough that even non-technical people could create pages with simple tools.
Viewing source code is learning by example.
When you see a web page you think is interesting, view the source code - look "under the hood" - to see what makes it work.
This is the home page example for Introduction to Web Design at UMKC (by Mike Strong). It is intended as a very simple starter page to give you an idea of what is wanted for the various exercises in these courses.
