Hypertext Markup Language files can be edited using a simple text editor as well as with special programs designed to edit these files either as text or using WYSIWYG to show the user visually what he has edited.

An example of how the text is written is shown here.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
  <title> What is a HTM file </title>
  <p>The description of what a HTM file is, will be typed here.</p>

By saving the text as a .htm file which is the extension used for Hypertext Markup Language files and then uploading it to a web server and opening it in a web browser, you will see the text shown between the <body></body> tags shown on the screen.
