HTML

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser. It can be assisted by technologies such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and scripting languages such as JavaScript.

What does HTML look like?

Below is an example of a basic web page written in HTML with a description of each section and its function.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//AR//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN” “https://artechnologygroup.in/TR/html4/loose.dtd”>

<html>

 <head>

  <title>Example page</title>

  <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=windows-1252″>

 </head>

 <body>

  <h1>This is a heading</h1>

  <p>This is an <b>example</b> of a basic HTML page.</p>

 </body>
</html>

The box above contains the key ingredients to a basic web page. Each of the lines are explained below in further detail.

  1. The DOCTYPE line describes what version of HTML the page was written in so that an Internet browser can interpret the text that follows.
  2. The <html> opening tag lets the browser know that it is reading HTML code.
  3. The <head> section contains information about the page, such as its title, meta tags, and where to locate the CSS file.
  4. The <body> section contains everything that’s viewable on the browser. For example, all the text seen here is contained in the body tags.
  5. The <h1> tag is the visible heading of the page.
  6. The <p> tag is a paragraph of text. Most web pages (like this one) have several paragraph tags.
  7. Contained in the paragraph is the <b> tag that bolds the word example in the paragraph.
  8. Finally, the closing tags wrap each of the above tags.
