This is a very basic index.html page template
that you can copy and paste to use to get you started.
Change the blue and green typed areas to include your
own information, the green typed area is the part that will
show up on the page.
Your main page must be called "index.html" or "index.htm" or
browsers won't be able to find your page.
All other pages you can name whatever you
like using no spaces (use underscore instead)
and ending in .html or .htm. For example these
are both suitable: links.html or my_links_page.htm.
Your html editor may assist you with color coding or
for an index of color codes check InfiNet.

So, say you want to use this background, white text, red links, orange active links and yellow visited links, using this template this is what you will have.
You're off to a great start, but you would probably like to perk it up a bit, use some graphics, change the font, add a table or bitmap? Add your own personal touch. Go to the Codes Page for basic codes. Just a few notes before you go, make sure your files end in the extention .html or .htm, check your links, make sure each opening code has a closing code and the rest you'll learn as you go.
