We wish to help you so we are bringing a text about HTML to you.
WHAT IS HTML?
HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is a basic language that is used for defining web pages and consists of elements (marked with tags) and the content. HTML is not a program language. HTML documents are accessed using browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari etc. For creating HTML documents you can use any text editor like for example Notepad, but it's recommended a more advanced program (Notepad++, Dreamweaver, NetBeans, Coda, etc.)
HTML tags represent certain parts of a document, in other words, it's elements. They are written in between these symbols < > (e.g.
<html>) and they usually come as a pair, like an opening and a closing tag. Every tag must be closed with the same tag and with the addition of a forward slash (
There are also self closing tags that don't need a closing tag, instead they close themselves by adding a forward slash at their end (e.g.
<img src="/images/image-html.jpg" border="0" alt="Introduction to HTML" />
Opening and closing tags can contain other elements or content, whilst self closing tags can't and are defined by attributes.
Comments are written in between these symbols
<!-- --> .
