html_1

This is my first h1 header! Or second, actually..

and just to see what the paragraph tag does here ...


So why learn html?

  • To show off
  • Need to be ahead
  • Actually, I ...

    1. want to have things easier
    2. don't want to waste time
    3. for my parents to have peace of mind
  • I care
Now, for some fun !
