Web pages are created using a language called "HTML" (Hyper-Text Markup Language). There is a wealth of information available on-line to teach you HTML. The guide I most often is w3schools. (HTML can be used in this wiki, instead of TWiki's text formatting rules.

Anyone with experience with a document-design language such as LaTeX will have little trouble mastering HTML. In fact, you usually create your first HTML document the same way you create your first LaTeX document: copy someone else's and edit it. For your convenience, two sample files are provided. The first, template.html, is heavily commented and teaches some basic HTML syntax. The second, sample.html, shows the layout of a simple home page that was produced by editing template.html.

Edit these files with your favorite text editor. Emacs has a special HTML mode that is invoked automatically when you edit any file that
 ends in ".html". If you type C-h m while editing an HTML file, you'll see a description of the special features of this mode. (On the Mac, I used the free program TextWrangler, and liked it so much that I paid for the extra features in BBedit.)

Viewing your web pages

Line: 87 to 84
  Note that there's no policy or requirement that your page be in the same style as the Nevis web site. Feel free to define your own styles, write your own server-side includes, or include your own Javascripts.

Other examples

 The files template.html and sample.html are very basic (and somewhat facetious) examples of how to set up a home page. For other examples, look at the home pages of some the Nevis faculty, such as Bill Zajc. You can copy these files into your own directory with the commands like:
cp ~zajc/WWW/index.html ~/WWW/zajc.html
