HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language, the term Hyper Text comes from HTML’s original purpose, to publish and share scientific information via hyperlinks, thus the name hyperText.
I have selected to use a program called Brackets. Brackets is modern and easy to use, the best feature it has is the live previewing screen which I can view on a second computer screen; so now I can view how the HTML documents will look like at the same time as coding them.
I will also use Notepad++ as it is a good way to write and store plain text without getting in the way of the HTML.
Colorcop is a pretty useful tool to find a colour you like on your screen and get the hex code for that colour.
