First HTML5 Website – Beginners Guide for Web Developers

First HTML5 Website.

This tutorial is connected from the first HTML5 tutorial the “HTML5 Introduction“.

In this tutorial, you will create your very first HTML5 Website. The IDE that we will be using is the Sublime Text. Download links are available by searching “Sublime” in google.

After you have installed the Sublime Text, double click the application and create “New File” from the File menu then save it as “index.html” and save as type as “HTML”.

After creating your index.html file, you can see that at the buttom of your Sublime Text code canvass from Plain Text to HTML. This indicates that your file is now an HTML type. (see image below).

First HTML5 Website

Note that your index.html file is not yet an HTML5 file. To make our HTML file into HTML5, just simple insert this line of code at the top of our blank canvass.

<!DOCTYPE html>

After doing such, let’s create our HTML5 basic line of code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang=’en’>
<meta charset=”utf-8″>
<title>Our Very First HTML5 Site</title>
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”css/stylesheet.css”>



As you would notice that our line of code in meta, link and script tags are being reduced. Because in HTML5, you can omit or leave out generic pieces of code as it is primarily used by the web.


After running your HTML5 file on your web browser, you can get an output like this:

The web browser instantly indicates that your file is an HTML5 file.

Success! You have created your own HTML5 Website!

In the next tutorial, we are going to discuss about the Site Structure: New Semantic Elements for HTML5. Stay tuned!
