HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. This tutorial page provides an overview of HTML and explains the basics of how to create and structure web pages using HTML.
To create an HTML page, you will need a text editor such as Notepad or Sublime Text. Open your text editor, create a new file, and save it with an .html extension. This will be your HTML file.
HTML structure: HTML consists of a series of elements, each represented by a pair of tags. For example, to create a heading, you would use the <h1> tag. To create a paragraph, you would use the <p> tag. The text between the tags is the content of the element.
- <html>: This tag is the root element and contains all other elements on the page.
- <head>: This tag contains information about the document, such as the title, meta data, and links to other files.
- <body>: This tag contains the content of the page, such as text, images, and links.
- <h1> to <h6>: These tags are used to create headings. H1 is the largest and most important heading, while H6 is the smallest.
- <p>: This tag is used to create paragraphs.
- <a>: This tag is used to create links.
Elements can also have attributes, which provide additional information about the element. For example, the <a> tag can have a "href" attribute that specifies the URL of the link.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is used to control the appearance of a web page. CSS can be added to an HTML page by linking to an external CSS file or by including the CSS code directly in the HTML file using a <style> tag.
This tutorial page provides a brief overview of HTML and how to create and structure web pages using HTML. There is much more to learn about HTML and web development, but this tutorial should be a good starting point.
