Understanding Basic HTML
- HTML is a basic web scripting language.
- HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.
- Thus HTML is a Markup language which is used to mark text to be displayed and interacted in a desired way.
- Such a Markup Language is able to show the specific characteristics by Markup tags.
- Such tags are used to describe the content in the document.
- Thus, a web page which is created purely by HTML, contains HTML tags and content to be displayed.
- Thus, loosely HTML documents are also called as web pages.
What are HTML Tags?
- HTML languages grows on “tagging” Text with keywords which are surrounded in angle brackets. <h1> is a good example.
Growing on Tagging
- Normally, most of the HTML tags have a opening tag and a closing tag. For example <h1> and </h1>. The opening tag is called as a starting tag and the closing tag is called as End tag.
- The difference in the start and end tags are almost same, only that the end tag has a forward slash, before the name of the tag.
- Thus, the start tag and the end tag are also called as Opening tag and Closing Tag.
