If you've just decided to make your first webpage, it's a good idea to find a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get, or not) HTML editor to create the pages. WYSIWYG editors allow you to create HTML documents by looking at the end-product as you create, meaning you don't write the actual code; the editor does.
A great way to learn the basics of HTML when using WYSIWYG is to look at the source code as you go along. The big problem is that these editors have a tendency to "mess up" HTML code. Keep this in mind; WYSIWYG is exactly that, What YOU See Is What YOU Get, and may not be what the rest of the world gets.
