Well, you cant install an app on a web page as you'll do on your OS's harddisk, if you don't own the web page.
However, if you own the page (and probably the website) you can run a Web based app that allows the user make use of the app/site without any downloading on his/her PC.
To create this, the web developer( which in this case is you) needs the knowledge of HTML and dynamic web content technology like JavaScript, PHP, ASP.net, Python, e.t.c.
And definitely, most of these shall be treated on this thread...

How 'bout on say facebook.

It is very possible it is very possible to create an app on Facebook.
Though,you will need a knowledge of HTML,CSS & JavaScript.

After the !DOCTYPE has been declared, the next element is -
1 The <html> element:
This element covers the whole document i.e. All other elements are nested within it. After all the contents of document have been typed in, its closing tag </html> is typed in. Simply put, the <html> tag tells the browser your document is an HTML file. Next, we have -
2 The <head> element:
It contains elements that describe the contents of the web page. All elements nested between the <head> and </head> tags are NOT visible in the webpage displayed by the browser to the viewer. Instead, they are used by search engines for indexing the page.
The most important element in the <head> section is -
3 The <title> element:
This element signifies the title of the document. The title of the document is what is visible in the upper properties bar of the browser. It is what appears as the document's title when the page is bookmarked. This title is also what is given as a search engine result.
Thus, the element
<title>Learn Web Design</title>
will appear as:
Learn Web Design

Supposing you're writing in XHTML 1.0 :

< ! DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//
W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0
Transitional//EN"
" http://www.w3.org/TR/
xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-
transitional.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Learn Web Design</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

TIP: Just change the doctype declaration for HTML 4.01 or HTML 5.

Other elements included in the <head> section are:
The <base> element:
It is used to create a base or default URL for all link on the page.
The <link> element:
It links the document to an external document. E.g a style sheet(for beautifying a page).
The <meta> element:
It provides keywords, document description, author of document, e.t.c. The meta tag elements are very useful for Search Engine Optimization (SEO), thus they will be discussed in full later.
The <script> element:
It is used to attach a client-side script like JavaScript in the document.
The <style> elements:
It is used to include CSS rules in the document.

NOTE: The elements above will be treated later when we apply them as to their respective uses.

The <body> element nests other tags that control the way webpage contents appear to the visitor/viewer. The elements within the <body> and </body> ARE VISIBLE to the viewer unlike those found in the <head> section. The basic elements in the <body> section are:

The Headings- <h1> to <h6> tags:
These tags are used to signify headings of a document. Headings in a Web page are used in the same way you'll use an heading when writing a physical article (in paper and pen).
To create a heading:

Input in your text editor:
<h1>Your Text</h1>
And "Your Text" will be highlited as your heading. Example: The HTML code <h1>Why Learn Web Design?</h1> will appear like this in a Web browser:

Re: Learn Web Design LIVE On Nairaland!!! by iyenimofe(m): 5:42pm On Aug 07, 2013
The <h1> tag is the largest of the <h1> to <h6> tags, with <h2> being smaller than <h1>, <h3> is smaller than <h2> and so on. The <h6> tag is the smallest among his "brothers."
Thus, you may use <h1> as the main heading of a page, <h2> as a subheading and so on.
To appreciate the difference between this tags, consider this image. The first line of text was written as an <h1>, the second <h2>, the third <h3> and so on.
NOTE: Writing the <h2> to <h6> tags is the same process of the <h1> tag, except that 1 in <h1> is replaced with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

The headings should be used as headings and as headings alone. DO NOT use headings to make text bigger (that's the work of another tag) as search engines use headings to determine the structure of your page and it will help in SEO.

The Paragraph <p> tag-
The <p> tag is used to create a new paragraph in an HTML page. The <p> tag is somewhat compulsory as all items (text, images, e.t.c) lay within it. The code for inserting a paragraph is:
<p>content</p>
When a new <p> element is inserted after a previous <p> tag, a line of white space is left and its contents start on the line after.

Aafulenu: Quick question, whats d best format? Html 4, html 5 or xhtml?
The main difference between HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 is that HTML 4.01 is more "forgiving" e.g you can ommit certain closing tags. So its good for a beginner. XHTML 1.0 does not do this. This gives an advantage of dependability and thus is widely used by webmasters. HTML5 is straight foward (as you can see in its DOCTYPE). However, it is not supported in old browsers. But features not supported will degrade to its older counter parts. I use XHTML 1.0 though. You can use any according to the above stated explanation. All oft their advantages and disadvantages...
