Introduction to HTML
This course currently has little content. A more develop resource can currently be found at What is HTML.
HTML is a language for describing web pages and stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. HTML is not a programming language, it is a markup language made up of markup tags. HTML uses markup tags to describe web pages. These tags usually come in pairs, are surrounded by angle brackets and generally have 'opening' and 'closing' tags, i.e. <html></html>
The purpose of a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox, is to read HTML documents and display them as web pages. You only need 8 tags to create a webpage.
