What is HTML?

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and is the base for building websites. Any text, links to other documents, markup language, headings, paragraphs, etc., go inside the HTML code. It gives the website structure and is a powerful tool that is heavily used nowadays. By using HTML, you can publish online documents by creating a website from scratch with headings, text, tables, lists, photos, etc.

HTML uses elements and attributes so people can write the source code for their sites. All its features are important, but a few of them stand out from the rest:

• <meta> Meta elements are used to specify page description, keywords, author, when the document was last modified, etc.

• <head> This represents the Head element or section. This section contains metadata that is not displayed on the site. Information within <head> can include the title of your page, links to fonts, link to the style sheet, and others.

• <div> This command divides your content into sections, which you can style later. With this, you can separate the information on your website depending on what you need.

•  <p> This represents the paragraph command. Whenever you need to write a text that is not a header, this is the one to use.

<links> With this command you can link anything to your website. Usually, when you use online tools to search for fonts or background colors, an <link> element is provided.

• <body> As the name suggests, this is where you will store the entire content of your webpage. It goes after <head> and inside all the sections and subsections are saved.

• <h1> this is the command you need to use whenever you want to showcase a header on your site.
