What is HTML?

Have you ever been curious about how the internet is constructed? The answer is complex but HTML is the foundation computer code that is used to create the World Wide Web. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language and uses markup tags to located content and files and then publish them for viewing on the World Wide Web. HTML tags are structured by a opening and closing markup tag ie.

Most modern websites consist of more interactive and engaging web functionality then just HTML can offer. These often more dynamic websites are created through the use of HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and MySQL databases. All websites are developed using HTML but often are combined with additional languages that generate a more interactive and engaging user experience.

HTML Structure

There are two main structures to HTML web pages, including the head and body sections. The head section of a HTML document identifies the non-visual elements that generate the web page. The head sections non-visual elements can include the websites meta information, css style sheets, scripts and additional information that is used within the web page The second section is the body section. The body section of the HTML document is where the visual elements are generated and what users see while visiting a website.
