As of 2014, there are more than a billion websites up and running on the web. And if you wish to make websites and work on some idea that you love, it’s important to learn some HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Languages and it’s the basic element for making HTML web pages. Hypertext refers to links that connect different web pages -- it could be pages of the same website or different sites.

All HTML elements start with a start tag and end with an end tag. Your web browser doesn’t directly display content with HTML tags; instead, it uses the theme to decide how to display the content.

For example, take a look at the H1 heading tag:

<h1>You’re reading an H1 heading</h1>

If you’re familiar with HTML, you would be knowing that it makes up the basic structure of a web page and consists of a series of elements. By labeling content pieces with tags like heading, paragraph, link, image, etc., it tells a web browser how to show the content on a web page.


HTML Elements Examples

  • <!DOCTYPE html> defines that a document is an HTML5 document
  • <html> is the root element of an HTML page
  • <head> contains meta info about the page
  • <title> denotes the HTML page title
  • <body> defines start of document body
  • <h1> denotes a large heading
  • <h2>, <h3>, <h4>, <h5>, <h6> represent next 5 level of section headings, with <h6> being the lowest
  • <p> defines a paragraph
  • <img> embeds image into the document
  • <video> embeds video into the document
  • <button> represents a clickable button
