What is HTML?

HTML 5 Logo HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is the most basic building block of the Web. It defines the meaning and structure of web content. Other technologies besides HTML are generally used to describe a web page's appearance/presentation (CSS) or functionality/behavior (JavaScript).

"HyperText" refers to links that connect web pages to one another, either within a single website or between websites. Links are a fundamental aspect of the Web. By uploading content to the Internet and linking it to pages created by other people, you become an active participant in the World Wide Web.

HTML uses "markup" to annotate text, images, and other content for display in a Web browser. HTML markup includes special "elements" such as <head>, <title>, <body>, <p>, <div>, <span>, <img> and many others.

Tags in HTML are case insensitive. That is, they can be written in uppercase, lowercase, or a mixture. Example <title> tag can be written as <Title>, <TITLE>, or in any other way.

In this course we will work with the newest version of HTML - HTML 5. HTML is really easy to learn for everyone. Our course is simple, we focused on practical examples than on theory, next chapter will show you where to write code and how to display page in your browser. We wish you a lot of fun coding in HTML.
