What is HTML?
HTML or HyperText Markup Language is a language of computers designed to create a website. HTML allows these created websites to be viewed by anyone connected to the internet. The definition of HTML can be broken into three components. The first, Hypertext, is how you move around the internet. Clicking on the text called hyperlinks allows you to view the next page you are going to. The second, Markup, is in regards to what HTML tags do. The tags mark the text as a certain text type. Lastly, HTML is the language itself as a whole with syntax and code words similar to other languages.
How Does HTML Work?
Tags are when the author of the site types a series of short codes into a text-file. Afterward, the tags are viewed in a browser once they have been saved as an HTML file. In turn, the browser then translates and reads the created file to make it visible to the viewer. The author has the ability to create any vision they want with the correct use of tags. The author can use powerful graphic design editing or a primitive text-based editor to create their HTML pages. HTML files work with CSS files, or Cascading Style Sheets, that have the style programmed into them.
