How to Write Script Files
- 1). Open a new Notepad or WordPad file and save it to your desktop with the extension "html". Go into your new file by right-clicking the icon. A menu will appear. Click the phrase "Open With" and then click "Notepad" or "WordPad", depending on which application you use.
- 2). Place "<html><body>" at the top of your opened page. Put the symbol "</body></html>" just below that. Your script files will eventually go in between the HTML signs and symbols. Make sure you use left and right angle brackets. This is how Internet browsers distinguish between markups (clues that tell computers and browsers what a piece of information should look like) and scripts (which tell the marked information how to run).
