HTML is an abbreviation of the term "Hyper Text Markup Language"


HTML is a computer language for website creation and are used for programming for static Web pages. It is a text document which includes markup tags that are used by Web browsers to present text and graphics.

It usually specifies hypertext links between related objects and documents.

Below is example HTML page

<html> tag tells that this is the start of an HTML document.

<head> header information which are not shown to the user.

<title> is the title of your document, which are shown on the browser's caption.

</title> title ends

</head> head ends

<body> text after tag will be displayed in your browser.

</body> sections ends

</html> end of the HTML document.

<html>
<head>
<title>Title</title>
</head>
<body>
This is a test page.
</body>
</html>

Because HTML tags are used to create static content, it's also possible to add example scripts to the page or links to the scripts.

<script type="text/javascript"> 
document.write("Hello World!")
</script>

Or external script

<script src="external_script.js"> 
</script>
