Since you visited this site yourself I believe you have one(1) of this knowledge which is “ you can surf the internet.
The second basic knowledge which is the main issue here is knowing HTML which stands for Hypertext mark up language.
Learning HTML is very easy. Before you’ll start seeing some of the commands or tags that brings about the way websites look you’ll need to have the following installed on your computer.

or get any program that can save text file as html (programs like microsoft Word, WordPad, Macromedia dreamweaver and so on).

The word editor (Notepad) is use for typing the HTML commands; this commands looks like this
<b> your text here </b>
The above command which is referred to as tag bolds the word  “ your text here” which is suppose to be your desired text you intend to bold. The tag <b> causes any word typed after it to be bold and the tag </b> ends  it ability to bold text, if the tag <b> does not end in </b> every word written after the tag <b> will be bold - so make sure you end the tag with the closing tag </b>.
