Brief overview of Hypertext Markup Language.
Hypertext Markup Language is a standard language used to create websites. HTML is a markup language that consist of markup tags that tells the browser how to display the contents of a web page. For example <strong> means the following text should be bold. To stop the bold text, use the closing tag </strong>
Markup tags are the words surrounded by angled brackets. Tags can also have attributes that provide additional information such as color and enlightenment.
Example of a simple HTML document:
<html> <head> <title>Page Title</title> </head>
<body> <h1>Heading</h1> <p>My first paragraph</p>
<p><strong>My second paragraph in bold</strong>.</p></body>
<p>This paragraph includes a <a href="http://www.pcreckoner.com">link</a></p> </html>
An HTML page is actually just a plain text file. You can open the above document in your browser, simply copy and past the text in Notepad and safe it with a .html extension.
Most browsers allow you to view the HTML code for web pages. For instance in Chrome and Firefox you can hit CTRL + U to open the web page source.
To learn more about HTML, I would recommend W3Schools.
