What are HTML Elements?


HTML elements are structures or behaviors that formulate the HTML document.
An element generally consists of 3 parts - a start tag (e.g. <title>),
content and an end tag (e.g. </title>).


  • Elements and tags are not the same.

  • Elements are case-insensitive, but it is better to use lower case.

  • Most elements contain a start tag, content and an end tag (e.g. <title>) .

  • Many elements have no content (e.g. <br>).

  • Elements without content can be closed by /> at the end (e.g. <br />) though it is
    not required.
  • All elements without end tags are closed by the beginning of the next element's
    start tag.

  • It is a good coding practice to close all elements with content with an end tag.
    Most browsers are intelligent enough to format the document without proper end tags
    and forgive coder mistakes.
