What is HTML?


HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language.

When using HTML, we use simple code structures such as tags and attributes. Syntax is also important - it is like the rules for the programming language.

Tags are like the building blocks for each page. Tags structure the content into sections, paragraphs, headings, and other content blocks.

Here is an example:

As seen above, all of the tags have arrows around them.

HTML documents are files that end with a .html extension. In order to have different pages, each page needs to have separate HTML documents. Home pages, about pages, contact pages all have separate HTML documents.
