Introduction

  • HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language, defined by www.w3.org, which is my sole reference for this tutorial.
  • HTML is the standard language for describing web pages and relations/linkages between them.
  • website is a set of web pages commonly described by HTML.
  • A website webpage can be read by a web browser, which is a software that understands HTML descriptions, retrieve them from the internet, and displays them to the user in the form intended by the HTML author(s) for that website.
  • Commonly used web browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, FireFox.
  • Web browsers commonly have editions that works on different devices and operations systems, including PC’s, Mobiles, and Tablets.
  • In addition to HTML, web browsers commonly understand more complex scripting languages that extend HTML, like JavaScript.
  • The latest edition is HTML 5, which added important capabilities to the language.
