Default Beginner Code

I am just starting out coding and am on page 7 of this book. I have tried entering the code on TextEdit on my Mac. However, my question is how to arrange the code. So basically,

1. Is there spacing between the bracket and the tag? <head> OR < head > ?

2. Is there a tab or space for the next line? In the example below, should I hit "tab" before entering <title>?
<title> Popular Websites: Google </title>

3. Is there a space after the tag and the wording?

<title> Popular Websites </title> OR <title>Popular Websites</title>?

These are probably stupid questions, but I am trying to see how to enter it in the TextEdit the right way so I can see it come up as a webpage.

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you!

Lightbulb There is exactly no rule, but for one: Take care inside tags spacing

You may give or may not give space between tags and wordings , but make sure you write it like <b> , and not like < b >.

HTML is not case sensitive so u may write in small letter or bigger one, but make sure you follow one standard rule in whole html document.

If you find my answer incomplete then please let me know. http://p2p.wrox.com/images/icons/icon3.gif

Default Chapter 4

I am on Chapter 4 and learning how to create tables. In the practical word, are coders actually using the HTML way to create these tables or are they using Excel to create the table and just use the image to add it to the website?
