HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is the base code for web pages.
It creates a visual presentation that is displayed by a web browser. The commands in HTML coding (known as TAGS) are enclosed in angle brackets < >. The tags normally come as a set. One to open a command, and one to close it. Everything between the two tags will be affected by them. The closing tag uses a forward slash / in it.

- HTML: a tutorial for creating webpages
HTML has come a long way since we wrote this tutorial in 1994! We had planned to add new lessons for Dynamic HTML, Cascading Style Sheets, and perhaps even XML. However, as these are much more comprehensive concepts than HTML (and would greatly increase the size of this package), our next plan is to develop brand new, separate tutorials.
Besides fixes for typos in the current lessons there would be no major updates before August 2001. We have selected other reliable tutorials on these subjects in our references section.
to HTML Primer
This is Primer #1 in a series of seven that will calmly introduce you to the very basics of HyperText Mark-up Language. I suggest you take the Primers one at a time over seven days. By the end of the week, you'll easily know enough to create your own HTML home page. No really. You will.
I say that because many people scoff at the notion that they can actually learn this new Internet format. I'm still amazed that the best-selling line of computer books calls its readers "Dummies." And people seem to revel in that title. Some of the smartest people I know love to proclaim themselves "Dummies" regarding every aspect of computers.
to Web Design
The web was initially conceived and created by Tim Berners-Lee, a computer specialist from the European Particle Physics Laboratory (CERN) in 1989.
In his words, there was "a need for a collaborative knowledge-sharing tool" to support scientific work in an international context.
He and his partner Robert Cailliau created a prototype web for CERN and released it to the Internet community for testing and comments.
Since then it has grown into the web we know today under the guidance of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) that is a volunteer organization based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with the responsibility for developing and maintaining common standards.
- Introduction To HTML and URLs
This collection of pages explains how to use the different HTML document description elements, or tags and how to use these elements to write good, well designed HTML documents. This particular page describes the overall content and organization of the material presented here, reviews some related resources that may be of interest, and describes the meanings of the navigational "buttons" you use to navigate from page to page.
- The History of HTML Goodies
It was around 1992, when the World Wide Web was still something most people had never heard about. A new browser called Netscape 1.0 had come out and I started studying for a Ph.D. in Communications at a large university in Ohio. During the first couple of weeks of the semester, everyone wanted to get hooked up to the school's Internet server so they could send email around. I was the first to successfully attach. It was more dumb luck than skill.
that also meant I was the first to be called when someone else couldn't seem to make their connection. After helping three or four people, somehow I was given the moniker of Computer Wizard. It was a totally groundless title, but one I wasn't willing to give up by telling the truth.
Made Really Easy
HTML is very easy to use; it was designed that way. You don't have to be a programmer to use it. If you can edit a text file, then you can write HTML (and if you can write email, you can edit a text file). If you tried to learn before and couldn't, then someone wasn't telling you the right things.
This tutorial will explain the structure of HTML quickly and clearly, and show you through examples the practical things you need to know, so you can be making your own pages soon (like, this afternoon). The whole tutorial is about 14 printed pages, but you only need the first four or so to be off and running.
HTML documents are text files made up of HTML elements. HTML elements are defined using HTML tags.
HTML tags are used to mark-up HTML elements . HTML tags are surrounded by the two characters < and >.
The surrounding characters are called angle brackets
HTML tags normally come in pairs like <b> and </b>
The first tag in a pair is the start tag, the second tag is the end tag
The text between the start and end tags is the element content
HTML tags are not case sensitive, <b> means the same as <B>
- Sizzling HTML Jalfrezi
Sizzling HTML Jalfrezi is a comprehensive guide to writing web sites. Whether you're a beginner or a design professional, you'll find what you need here; quickly and clearly. Our unique system of examples makes Jalfrezi both the perfect learning tool and superlative web authoring reference.

below. I have assumed that you already know what HTML is, have tried giving it go and are now looking to expand your HTML vocabulary or learn more about the code used.
This tutorial is a "hands on" tutorial you get to test your new HTML skills immediately after you learn the code, chapter by chapter
all within your web browser. There is no need to go fiddle with other applications while you are learning HTML code with this tutorial.HTML stands for the HyperText Markup Language. HTML code is the major language of the Internet's World Wide Web. Web sites and web pages are written in HTML code. With HTML code and the world wide web, you have the ability to bring together text, pictures, sounds, and
links all in one place HTML code files are plain text files, so they can be composed and edited on any type of
computer Windows, Mac, UNIX, whatever.
This is not intended to teach you everything there is to know. My hope is that after reading this, you will be able to use these examples to put together HTML formatted documents of your own.This tutorial is based on on the W3C recommendation, where the idea is to use CSS wherever possible, but to still include semantic HTML to support older browsers. I have also written a CSS tutorial to demonstrate its use.<p>
strong and emphasised text
just emphasised text
This introduction may not be for everyone. We are going into extreme detail on the very basics and are assuming the user has hardly any experience with making web pages.
HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is the universal language amongst every web page on the internet and the World Wide Web (or WWW). To write a document in html you need some kind of text editor such as notepad in Windows. It is a basic program which allows you to type text. There are a variety of text editors out there, but I personally use notepad
Once in the program you can start typing text immediately. With this program you can use it for many things, as it does not have to be used for html. You can type notes, stories, letters or whatever, but it is a great program to use to type html documents.
- The Bare Bones Guide to HTML
This document is designed to serve a particular niche. It is intended as a concise "cheat sheet" that you can use to look up the correct forms of tags as you are creating Web pages. Other HTML guides provide significantly more descriptive material about how to use particular tags or how HTML works in general. If you are a beginner, you might try one of those guides first.There are also several style guides that focus more on how to write pages that look good and work on different browsers. I encourage you to read one or more of them if you are planning on creating Web pages; far too many people ignore the fact that their pages are going to be read by other people and that there are better and worse ways of doing things.
Complete Guide HTML
The purpose of this document is to provide a comprehensive listing of html tags understood by Xmosaic, in one place. And to be used to write HTML documents.
This is based on a selective reverse engineer of Mosaic2.1 and an amalgamation of the HTML help documents, No guarantees about accuracy of information is given as I havent figured everything out yet.
Examples are not always provided. In case of confusion please look at the source of this document.
Ive done a few non-standard things to get images in headings, and I know it's not a particularly elegant method.
HTMLementary consists of four frames. The top right one contains a set of buttons you use to move around. The left frame usually contains HTML source code. The right frame shows the HTML source code as a Web page. As you move through the topics, HTMLementary updates the frames automatically. The top left frame is a graphic.
HTML tags are shown in navy. New HTML tags or items being stressed are shown bolder than others. If you are using a newer browser they are also red.
That is all HTML means, nothing really mysterious. It uses only the letters and symbols on your regular keyboard. What it does is tell a browser what to show on a Page that you have asked for (by putting the address in the address bar), and how to format the information for that page.
HTML is really quite simple, and most of the "tags" (what we call the different "codes") are common sense, therefore easy to remember. Besides, you should have a printout of the tags to refer to, in case you do forget. Start with the common and basic ones, and add others later on.
- W3C HTML Home Page
This is W3C's home page for the HTML Activity. Here you will find pointers to our specifications for HTML/XHTML, guidelines on how to use HTML/XHTML to the best effect, and pointers to related work at W3C. When W3C decides to become involved in an area of Web technology or policy, it initiates an activity in that area. HTML is one of many Activities currently being pursued. You can learn more about the HTML Activity from the HTML Activity Statement.
- World Wide Web Consortium
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develops interoperable technologies (specifications, guidelines, software, and tools) to lead the Web to its full potential. W3C is a forum for information, commerce, communication, and collective understanding. On this page, you'll find W3C news, links to W3C technologies and ways to get involved. New visitors can find help in Finding Your Way at W3C. We encourage organizations to learn more about W3C and about W3C Membership.
