    http://charlieknill.x10host.com/ is my very first attempt at coding a website in HTML and as such is very, VERY basic! Please review my website and leave constructive criticism on how I can improve for future websites!

    Thank you :)

    what I 'see' is format errors like missing [ / ] and [ > ] for the most part - I am looking at the source code and not of the page(s) layout or style
    where is the file [ Main.css ] ?

    here is a link to do your own tests - be sure to check mark the [ Show source ] - it will be highlighted with any errors

    see --> [ https://validator.w3.org/nu/?showsource=yes&doc=http://charlieknill.x10host.com/index.html ]

    Thanks for the link :) I have taken a look a look at my code using the link and your right. There is a lot of errors. I will try and fix these errors when I get the time. As for the location of the Main.css file I am not too sure where it is. I used various online tutorials to code my website and don't remember a Main.css file.

    The only part of your index page that loads on my end is:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
       <title>Charlie's Website!</title>
       <meta charset="utf-8"/>
       <link rel="stylesheet" type="tex/css" href="Main.css"
       </head>
       <body>
    
    
       </body>
       <h3>This website was coded in Sublime Text 1.4 which can be downloaded <a href="https://www.sublimetext.com/">here</a>
       <h1> Welcome to my website! <h1>
       <u1>
            <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="Aboutme.html">About me</a></li
            <li><a href="Contactme.html">Contact me</a><li>
    <u1>
    and it has errors that need fixing.
    your
    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="tex/css" href="Main.css"
    should be
    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Main.css" />
    There should be nothing under the </body> tag except the </html>

    and don't forget to add a closing tag <h3></h3>
    Also list tags are <ul></ul> or <ol></ol>
    This page should look more like this:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
       <title>Charlie's Website!</title>
       <meta charset="utf-8"/>
       <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Main.css">
       </head>
       <body>
    
    <h3>This website was coded in Sublime Text 1.4 which can be downloaded <a href="https://www.sublimetext.com/">here</a></h3>
       <h1> Welcome to my website! <h1>
    
    <ul>
            <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="Aboutme.html">About me</a></li
            <li><a href="Contactme.html">Contact me</a><li>
    <ul>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Looks like a good start. Coding is hard at first but you catch on quickly. Once you get more proficient in HTML/CSS try adding some dynamic content to your pages.

    Thank you for the feedback everyone :) I have now fixed (hopefully) the index page so hopefully there will be no more errors!
