Some basics first.


Can I create an HTML5 page that will connect to the db easily ...

No. Not directly, anyway.

Remember how "The Web" works ...
Your web browser makes a "request" to a web server that runs some code that connects to a database, runs some SQL queries, gets some data, reformats that data into HTML and sends it back to your browser, where is it rendered into the pretty stuff that we see every day.
Browsers do not connect directly to Databases. That would be a huge security risk.


How do I connect ...

That depends entirely on how your web server application is built.
You'll have a client library suitable for that development language (e.g. PHP's PDO) and you'll use that library to connect to the database, run queries, etc.


Cant see it.

Since you're asking in a MySQL forum, MySQL Workbench is probably the best place to start.
