The Best Guide to HTML Tags
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is a standard markup language for web page creation and formation. It recognizes 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 tags are the keywords on a web page that characterize how our web browser must format and display our web page. With the support of Tags, a web browser can differentiate between an HTML content and a simple content. But some HTML tags are unclosed tags.:
- Opening tag
- Closing tag.
For example, <html> is the opening tag and </html> is the closing tag.
- Note that the closing tag has the same text as the opening tag, but has an additional forward-slash ( / ) character.
Basic HTML Tags
This is the very first thing in your document, before the HTML tag. It tells the browser which HTML or XHTML specification the document uses.
The HEAD element contains information about the current document, such as its title.
This container is placed within the HEAD structure. Between the opening and closing title tags, you should have the title of your document.
The largest part of your HTML document is the body, which contains the content of your document( that is displayed within the browser window).
This tag encloses a block of content. It is useful for applying alignment and style to a section of a document that contains multiple elements rather than having to apply the alignment and styles to each element in the block. Each DIV element starts on a new line.
Heading Tag <H1>, <H2>, <H3>, <H4>, <H5>, <H6>:
The tags H1, H2, H3, H4, H5 and H6 displays headings. Level 1 is the most prominent heading and level 6 is the least prominent. Headings are usually displayed in a bolder, larger font than the normal body. Heading start on a new line.
