What are HTML Attributes?


HTML elements can have associated properties known as attributes. Attributes are
added to an element as name-value pairs before the closing '>' of the element's
start tag. An attribute consists of 2 parts - a name (e.g. face) and a value
(e.g. Arial).

Example: <img src="/images/logo.gif" alt="Logo" width="400" height="300">


In the above example, there are 4 attributes of the image element. The name of these
attributes are src, alt, width and height. The corresponding values are /images/logo.gif,
Logo, 400 and 300.




  • Any number of (legal) attributes can be added to an element.

  • Attributes are added in the name="value" format.

  • Attributes are separated by spaces.

  • Attribute names are not case sensitive.

  • It is a good coding practice to enclose attribute values within double quotes (").

  • If quotes are not used, values can consist of letter (a-z and A-Z), digits (0-9),
    hyphens and periods.
