What Are HTML and its uses?/HTML Introduction

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language and used for creating web pages.

For your better understanding, I explain to you an example of building construction.

Building construction is done with the help of brick, sand, and cement. So here brick, cement, and sand are the elements that together form a beautiful building.

In the same manner, HTML elements are used to construct a beautiful web page. When several HTML tags are written in a proper manner then they form a beautiful web page as per requirement.

Heading, Paragraph, Title, table are a few examples of tags that are used to write a specific type of content on the webpage as per the requirement.

If you are in a software or a programming field then knowledge of HTML would be a great help for building your program, website, front-end design, job interview questions, college viva questions.

  • All HTML tags are written in pair like <h1>….</h1> except few of them like<img/>, </br> and etc.
  • 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, but with a forward slash inserted before the tag name
  • The start tag is also called the opening tag, and the end tags the closing tag.

HTML: The <!DOCTYPE> Declaration

The <!DOCTYPE>  This declaration represents the type of document whether it is in HTML or HTML5 and this also helps the browser to display the page correctly.

This declaration must appear once at the top of the document before any HTML tag.

This is not case sensitive.
