A basic website can be designed by using HyperText Markup Language (HTML). The scripts can be written in Notepad or a text document depending on the operating system which you use .The very basic tools for creating a website start with the use of HTML tags and HTML elements. The former are often used to pass on information about the unit of the content and the latter ones are used to format tools for the webpage. While coding, the HTML attributes and values are used to provide information like placement, height etc. for the content. In addition to these, one can use color tags, picture tags and HTML division tags to create a vivid webpage.
