Preview your page in a web browser by clicking on the file from your file listing. This is what the first generation of web pages looked like. Pretty boring, huh

Adding Simple Styles

Up to this point we've only made changes that are in basic HTML, the following changes create styles called cascading style sheets (CSS). CSS allows much more flexibility in format and layout. The following styles add in a font style and background color to the document (body), add in color and sizes for the headings (h1, h2, h3) and make a box for the content that has a white background and is centered on the page.

<style type="text/css">
body {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
background-color: #003300;

h1 {
font-size: 200%;
color: #003399;
h2 {
font-size: 150%;
color: #003399;
h3 {
font-size: 125%;
color: #003399;
#content {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
width: 540px;
margin-right: auto;
margin-left: auto;
padding-right: 3px;
padding-left: 3px;
