What is HTML?


HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.
It is the publishing language of the World Wide Web (WWW). HTML is written in
English (uses English words) and have standardized tags and elements, which the
web brower understands. The web browers translate the HTML code into a viewer
friendly web page.

components like Javascript, images etc.) to a viewer friendly web page. Most common
web browers are Intenet Explorer (from Microsoft), Netscape and Opera. You are
using a web browser if you are viewing this web page.

How to create a HTML page?


Creating HTML is very simple. You need a text editor like 'Notepad', which comes free
with your computer (if using Windows). Open the text editor and type in the following
lines of HTML code.

<html>
<head>
<title>Welcome</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Hello World! Welcome to my website.</h1>
</body>
</html>


Save the text file with a name 'index.html'. You can also use the extension '.htm'.
Open a web browser, click on 'File' and select 'Open'. Select the file you just saved
from the directory where you saved. You now can see your webpage in the browser and your first
'Hello World' HTML page is ready. You can see the title of the page on the top bar of your browser.

Understanding the HTML tag.


A HTML tag is enclosed within a < and > sign. For example <b> is a starting bold tag.
Similarly an end tag is enclosed within </ and > signs (e.g. </b>) . The slash makes it the end tag.

Check

Understanding the HTML code above.


A HTML document is enclosed within a <html> start tag and a </html> end tag.
It is divided into a head section
(here, between <head> and </head>) and a body (here, between <body>
and </body>). The title of the document appears in the head (along with other information about
the document) between the <title> and </title> tags, and the content of the
document appears in the body. The body in this example contains one sentence between header <h1>
and </h1> tags.
