Introducing HTML



HTML is used to create web pages. It is the first computer language to learn if you wish to create your own web pages.


HTML is a markup language. Each element within an HTML web page is marked with a starting and ending 'tag'.

For example:

 Start tag: <html>
 End tag: </html>

If the tag has no content or nothing in between the start and end tags then you can use a shorthand notation by placing a '/' at the end of the tag name.

For example:

 <image/>


All HTML pages consists of the following framework:
    <html>
        <head>
            <title></title>
        </head>
        
        <body>
        </body>
    </html>
    
    
A web page is one document or file with HTML tags/elements in the same order and manner as the above text. The document or file is saved with the file extension .html or .htm.

For example: myfirstwebpage.html


All HTML/web pages start and end with the 'html' tag.
