Learn about Web browser software and Web pages
  • The Web is a collection of files that reside on
    computers, called Web servers.
  • Web servers are connected to each other through

    the Web server is your Web browser.

    Internet Explorer

  • Each computer on the Internet has an unique
    identification number, called an IP (Internet

    Internet uses a four-part number.
  • Each part of the address is a number ranging from
    0 to 255, and each part is separated from the
    previous part by a period, for example

Anchor tags are used to define hyperlinks

    formatting tags that enable your browser to read

    page, creates a hypertext link or hypermedia link
    to other HTML documents or to other media.

    to dozens of recipients at once.
