Here is an answer to John Peralta's question

I'm a professional Web designer, and I work with this stuff every day. Although you can use images to display the HTML code on your page, it's really inefficient because images take longer to load.

What you want to use to display the HTML code is HMTL "entities." For example:

if you were to type , then the browser would think that you were trying to begin your body tag, however. . .

if you used "entities," you could type <BODY> and produce the same results.

Here you are just creating the symbol for the "less than" sign (<), and then including your text, and then including another symbol for the "grater than" sign (>)

This way, the browser knows that you are not trying to write a "tag."
