Introduction to HTML
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is a standard markup language for web page creation. It allows the creation and structure of sections, paragraphs, and links using HTML elements (the building blocks of a web page) such as tags and attributes.
- HTML is the standard markup language for Web pages. It can be used to create your own website.
- HTML is platform-independent and is used to write most hypertext documents on the web.
- You need a simple text editor to write HTML codes and a web browser to view the code work.
- In HTML everything comes inside a tag. Tags are not displayed on the web browser but it tells the browser how to display the content that is inside the tag.
- A tag is enclosed between angular brackets < >. A tag may have an optional list of attributes.
- The name and attributes within a tag are not case sensitive, most HTML tags are containers, i.e. they have a start tag and an end tag, an end tag is the same as the start tag, but it is preceded by a slash (/). Some tags don’t have end tags.
