HTML Introduction

What in the world is HTML?

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is the primary language used for the development of web pages and web apps on the internet. It uses concepts like tags and attributes for describing various content types¬†in a webpage like paragraphs, titles, headings, images, video, audio, etc,…

HTML is part of the triad of languages used for developing modern websites and web pages. The three languages are:

  1. HTML (HyperText Markup Language): The markup language used for describing webpage content.
  2. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets): The styling language used for changing the appearance of web pages constructed using HTML.
  3. JavaScript: A popular programming language used for changing the looks and features of web pages constructed using HTML and CSS in the browser.

In short, we can say that web pages are made using HTML, styled using CSS and given interactivity using JavaScript. Learning one or all of these languages will help in understanding how the Web works.
