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'.
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.
All HTML pages consists of the following framework:
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.
