Geting started with html

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It was invented in 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee.

HTML is the basic language of any browser and if we want to make website then there is no way around HTML. It’s a set of tags and each tag describes different web page content.

Let’s take an examples:

To make your first html page, follow the below steps:

Step 1: Open the notepad and write the below code

<title>My First Html Page</title>
This is body part.

Step 2: Save the notepad file with .html extension in your computer, you can save in any drive or desktop also, like I saved my html file with name “h1.html”.

Step 3: Right click on your html file and open with any browser (like internet explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.)

You can view the below output:

Explanation of example

  • <html> tag describes that our html document begins from here and </html> tag describes that our html document ends here.
  • Between <head> and </head> tag we mention information about document like title, keywords, etc.
  • Between <title> and </title> tag we provides the title of document. Like you can see in above output “My First Html Page” is a title.
  • Between <body> and </body> we writes the content of our html page.
