HTML or Hyper Text Markup Language is the main foundation of a web page. Without HTML no website can be displayed. HTML is a markup language or interpreter based scripting language specially designed to show web pages in web browsers. It is very simple and easy to learn. As it is an interpreter based scripting language, no compilation is required before execution of HTML code like other compiler based languages such as C++, Java etc.
HTML is written with the help of several HTML elements or HTML tags. HTML tags are some special keywords enclosed with angular brackets (‘<’ and ‘>’). Each tag has own functionality or role in a HTML document.
Below we have given a simple HTML code snippet for creating a simple web page.
<html> <head> <title>Your first HTML page title</title> </head> <body> Your first HTML page </body> </html>
