This post is for absolute beginners - those who use the web, but have no idea about how the webpages/websites work. By the end of the post, I hope to get the reader at a position where he/she has an overall idea about what goes into a simple webpage. And hopefully, (if the reader has some programming background) the reader should be able to start coding and enjoying javascript.

In his essay "Hackers and Painters", Paul Graham says :
Empathy is probably the single most important difference between a good hacker and a great one. One way to tell how good people are at empathy is to watch them explain a technical question to someone without a technical background.
I decided to try it myself. Hence this attempt of a "introduction for beginners".
