What is HTML?

HTML is a text markup language. Used to develop and design web pages and web applications. Let’s see what the text markup language and the web page mean.

HyperText

HyperText is a basically “Text in Text.” This text contains a link and is a hypertext. Hyperlink will bring you to a new web page by clicking on it. HyperText is a way to connect two or more web pages with each other (HTML documents).

Markup Language

Markup Language is a computer language used to apply layout and format conventions to text documents. Markup language renders text more dynamic and interactive. You can convert text to pictures, tables, links, etc.

Web page

A web page is a text that is usually written in HTML, which is interpreted by a web browser. You can identify a web page by entering an URL. A Web page may be static or dynamic. We can create static web pages with the help of HTML only.

HTML is therefore a markup language that is used to construct attractive web pages with the help of styling. It appears in a pleasant format in web browser. Many HTML tags are made of an HTML document, and each HTML tag contains different content.

Description of HTML Example

<!DOCTYPE>

DOCTYPE describes the type of text, and instructs the HTML version of the browser.

<HTML>

The HTML tag informs the browser that it is an HTML document. The text of the HTML tag defines a Web document.

<head>

It should be the first element which contains the metadata (document information) in the < html > element. The body tag has to be closed before it opens.

<title>

This is used to add a description to the HTML file which appears, as the title suggests, at the top of the browser window.

<body>

Text in body tags describes the website’s body content which is available to the end-user. This tag contains the HTML document’s main contents.

<h1>

The text under the < h1 > tag defines the first heading of the web page.

<p>

The text under the < h1 > tag defines the paragraph of the web page.

HTML Version

Since many HTML versions have been invented on the market, the following is a brief introduction to the HTML version:

HTML 1.0

The first version of HTML was 1.0, the barebones version of HTML, released in 1991.

HTML 3.2

In early 1997 W3C released HTML 3.2 version. This version was able to create tables and provide support for additional options for form elements. It is also supported by a web page containing complex mathematical equations. It became official standard for every browser as of January 1997. This is basically supported by most browsers today.

HTML 4.01

HTML version 4.01 was released in December 1999 and is a very stable version of the HTML language. This version is the latest official standard and provides added stylesheet (CSS) support and scripting capabilities for different multimedia elements.
