Html Basics

Html Basics

What is HTML?

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is the language used to write Web pages which consists of codes (tags) embedded in the text of a document.

What are Tags?

Tags are codes in an HTML document which the browser reads and then interprets for subsequent display to a reader. Tags are not visible when an HTML document is viewed in a browser, but their effects are. Tags begin with the opening symbol "<" and end with the closing symbol ">"; and usually come in pairs, one that begins an action and one that ends it.
Below is an example of an HTML tag and its respective browser display:
HTML Code   Browser Display
I want to <B> emphasize </B> this!   I want to emphasize this! 

Explanation of Document Structure

Each HTML document has a minimum number of tags. Here is the very least HTML code that can be called a "page":

<TITLE>This is my page Title!</TITLE>


This is my message to the world!



NOTE: HTML is not case sensitive. <title> is equivalent to <TITLE> or <TiTlE>.
