Hyper Text Markup Language, conveniently known as the HTML is the backbone of
any web page. Initially HTML was used for sharing of online documentation. This
language also did not support image tag and therefore could not display graphics on web
pages. But this is almost unthinkable in the present era of World Wide Web. HTML is a
very basic computer language and it is easy to learn. The features of this computer
language are not very varied and are simple to grasp.
Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) is used for creating web pages. It is one of the
predominant markup languages used for web pages. This computer language is written in
the form of tags and the text is kept within angled brackets. The first step of using HTML
is formatting texts.
Using tables, line breaks, by paragraphs etc, does formatting on a web page. There are
more complex and challenging features of HTML that helps to determine the structure of
a web site. Some of the complex features of HTML are anchor tags, layering, framing etc.
Incorporating the different features of HTML for developing the web pages will ensure
more professional outlook to the web site.
The markup language is a compilation of instructions that are to be provided with content
of a web page. This set of instructions denotes how a web page will look like or should
operate on a browser. Markup is unique string of characters that are assembled with
ordinary texts. HTML can be easily edited once it is created, as the computer language is
text based. A more updated version of HTML is nowadays used by a developer, which is
known as XHTML.
The primary components of Hyper Text Markup Language are as follows:
Attributes> Offers added information about instance of an element
Elements> Helps in identifying the various parts of HTML page
Entities> Denotes the non – ASCII text characters
