Create a New HTML Page with Nvu html editor

Starting a New Page

Nvu lets you create your own web pages and publish them on the web. You don't have to know HTML to use Nvu; it is as easy to use as a word processor.

Toolbar buttons let you add lists, tables, images, links to other pages, colors, and font styles. You can see what your document will look like on the Web as you create it, and you can easily share your document with other users, no matter what type of browser or HTML-capable email program they use.

Creating a New Page

Nvu is an HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) editor that allows you to create and edit web pages. Nvu is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor, so you can display how your page will look to the reader as you're creating it. It is not necessary for you to know HTML, since most of the basic HTML functions are available as commands from the toolbars and menus.

Nvu also lets you edit the HTML source if you want. To view or edit the HTML source code, open the View menu, and choose HTML Source, or click the Source tab in the Edit Mode toolbar at the bottom of the Nvu window.

To create a web page, use one of the methods described below. Once you've started a page, you can add and edit text just as you would in a word processor.

To create a new page in Nvu:

  • Click the New button in Nvu's toolbar.

To start from an HTML file stored on your local drive:

  1. Open the Window menu and choose Nvu. You see the Nvu window.
  2. Open the File menu and choose Open File. You see the Open HTML File dialog box.
  3. On your local drive, locate the file that you want to edit.
  4. Click Open to display the specified file in a Nvu window.

To edit a web page:

  1. Open Nvu
  2. Click on File menu and choose Open Web Location. You will see the Open Web Location dialog box.
  3. Type in the URL of the page to edit (for example, http://www.mozilla.org) and click Create button. You will see the page displayed in Nvu.

Nvu also gives you the option of creating a new document using the XHTML format. To create an XHTML document, check the option "create an XHTML document" in the Create New Document or Template dialog box.

Tip: In the Nvu window you can quickly open the most recent file you've been working on by opening the File menu, choosing Recent Pages, and then selecting the file you want from the list.
