Start by launching Mozilla; the icon looks like a red Dinosaur head.
Once Mozilla is launched, you’ll see a typical web browser
window. To start creating a web page, go to the menu item:
File > New > Composer Page
At the top, you see many icons that are similar to those found in
a word processing application such as new, open, save and print.
Other icons are unique to web authoring, such as image, which lets
you insert an image in your page, and table, which lets you insert
a table. Also, you see the link icon which lets you create a hyperlink
in your page. Notice the publish icon; this is Mozilla’s
FTP function which allows you to publish your web page to a server
and make it viewable on the worldwide web.
On the next tier of icons, you have many of your text formatting
On the very left, you can choose the format for the type of
text you are typing, whether part of the text body or a heading.
Next you can choose the color of your text by clicking on
the black box in the foreground and the color of your background
on the white box in the background. The small and large A’s
let you change font size, and you can also choose if you
want your text bold, italicized or underlined. Finally, you
add in bulleted
or numbered lists and choose a justification for your text.
At the bottom of the window you see tabs.
These will allow you to
toggle between different views. There is normal view, which is
the default view you see now, and the tags view, which shows what
of the page you are working on. The code view shows the HTML code for your page and the preview tab will
show you what your page will look like in a browser window.
