About HTML

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. With Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript, it forms a triad of cornerstone technologies for the World Wide Web (www).

Web browsers receive HTML documents from a web server or from local storage and render the documents into multimedia web pages. HTML describes the structure of a web page  and originally included cues for the appearance of the document.

HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML pages. With HTML constructs, images and other objects such as interactive forms may be embedded into the rendered page.

What is HTML actually?
HTML is an abbreviation for HyperText Markup Language. HTML is not a programming language, that is, you do not create programs with HTML. You are using a browser (such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox or Opera) to read HTML – it is the browser that interprets the HTML tags – without a browser, the codes do not have any meaning.

HTML consists of the following terms:

Hyper

In this context, means that you can move in any direction, depending on which hyperlink you click.

Text

This is plain text.

Markup

This means that parts of the HTML document are highlighted in such a way that the different parts stand out from the rest of the same document. HTML define structure and not appearance.

Language

HTML is thus a markup language used to mark parts of a document and this allows you to click on to another place in the same document or to another document, ie surf the web.

HTML is a language used to publish website on the information channel World Wide Web, which is part of the internet. It is important to understand that HTML does nodefine appearance, but structure. To define the appearance, use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
