Introduction to HTML

HTML is an abbreviation for Hypertext Markup Language and is a language to create websites. Every website over the internet has the HTML language to view the pages, and it can be combined with other languages to create your custom CSS and templates. HTML is easy to learn and deploy; you can create simple web pages within minutes.

Hypertext means “Text within Text,” i.e. if any text has a link associated with it that redirects to different text/pages, it is a hypertext. Hypertext binds the two texts/pages with each other. Markup Language is used to apply text formatting and layout to texts that make texts more dynamic and interactive.

Let’s see a simple example of HTML:

<!DOCTYPE>  
<html>  
<head>  
<title>Web page title</title>  
</head>  
<body>  
<h1>Write Your First Heading</h1>  
<p>Write Your First Paragraph.</p>  
</body>  
</html>
