What is HTML?

HTML is a data language which is used to edit and stylize web pages. People sometimes refer to it as a programming language which is not correct.

HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like <html>). HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like
 , although some tags represent empty elements and so are unpaired, for example <img>. The first tag in a pair is the start tag, and the second tag is the end tag (they are also called opening tags and closing tags).

<!DOCTYPE html>



<h1>My First Heading</h1>

<p>My first paragraph.</p>

  • The DOCTYPE declaration defines the document type.
  • The text between <html> and </html> describes the web document.
  • The text between <body> and </body> describes the visible page content.
  • The text between <h1>and  </h1> describes a heading.
  • The text between <pand .</p> describes paragraph.


HTML tags are keywords (tag names) surrounded by angle brackets:


DOCTYPE Declaration

The <!DOCTYPE> declaration helps the browser to display a web page correctly. There are many different documents on the web, and a browser can only display an HTML page correctly if it knows the HTML version and type.[Sourced from]
