HTML 5th Note

HTML = Hyper Text Multimedia languange

  • HTML is not a programming language, it is a markup language
  • A markup language is a set of markup tags
  • The purpose of the tags are to describe page content 
  • HTML Tags

    HTML markup tags are usually called HTML tags
  • HTML tags are keywords (tag names) surrounded by angle brackets like <html>
  • HTML tags normally come in pairs like <b> and </b>
  • The first tag in a pair is the start tag, the second tag is the end tag
  • The end tag is written like the start tag, with a forward slash before the tag name
  • Start and end tags are also called opening tags and closing tags

HTML Elements

"HTML tags" and "HTML elements" are often used to describe the same thing.
But strictly speaking, an HTML element is everything between the start tag and the end tag, including the tags:
HTML Element:
<p>This is a paragraph.</p>
