Also, you might want to include some standard code for the template document you are putting together. The following is standard "XHTML 1.0 Strict" code for a basic blank page.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /><title>Untitled Document</title></head><body></body></html>

If you are learning things at this point, as I am relearning much, try to focus on XHTML rather than HTML. That's what I was advised to do and I think that it's reflected in my programing habits.
