To create and view web pages at home you will need:

With those two programs you can create and view web pages on your home computer.

If you want to upload the programs to the our class web site (ssweb.us) so that anyone can view them on the web, you will need a file transfer program. I recommend Filezillaq

Downloading and Installing these programs:

Browser(s)

You already have at least one browser, such as "Internet Explorer", "Edge", or "Chrome" on you computer.

Text Editor

If your computer uses any version of Windows (7, 8, 10), it already has a text editor called "Notepad". Though this is adequate, I recommend downloading and installing the "Notepad++" editor

Notepad++ can be downloaded from this site:

https://notepad-plus-plus.org/

There are a number of videos on YouTube showing how to download and install Notepad++. Here is one for Windows:
