New to HTML
Looks to me like this is the place to be right now! I am trying notepad for the first time and I am trying to learn html for the first time. Here is some code that I am trying to understand:
<HTML><META HTTP-EQUIV=“content-type” CONTENT=“text/html;charset=utf-8”>
Is there someone that can help me understand this? does “content-type” mean this is where I place whatever I want to say? I pasted it into Notepad and tried to view it as source, but nothing happened!
If you are just learning HTML and CSS3 you may want to check out https://mva.microsoft.com/en-US/training-courses/html5-css3-fundamentals-development-for- , this is a great video course.

As already recommended, it is a good idea to start with a guided
tutorial if you want to learn a new programming language.
To answer your question,
Is there someone that can help me understand this? does “content-type” mean this is where I >place whatever I want to say?
No, you set a meta attribute, which is basically the information for your browser
that this site has utf-8 encoded text.
I pasted it into Notepad and tried to view it as source, but nothing happened!
The line itself, although it is incomplete, is the source.
If you do plain html coding I recommend installing the html preview plugin,
can be done via plugin manager, which, as the name suggests, gives you a preview of your code. So you see what changes on the “site” when changing code instantly(more or less).
Simple example. After installing the plugin, goto plugins->Preview HTML and select Preview HTML. Open a new document, select HTML as language and put the following text into it.
<HTML> <head> <title>first html site</title> </head> <body> show something </body> </HTML>
