I'm still not quite sure what the difference between a "Web page" and an "HTML page"

what is the difference between them Web page and HTML ?

[font=verdana]It’s like the difference between a book and a language.

HTML is a language that you use to write web pages. That’s all it is.[/font]

You could always read the rest of “Sams Teach Yourself HTML 4 in 24 Hours”, which is where you copied your question from. I’m sure it will also supply the answer.
