HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is one of the core technologies for building web pages. It usually provides the structure of a web page, while CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is responsible for the layout – for a variety of devices.
HTML enables publishers to
- publish online documents with headings, text, tables, lists, photos, etc.
- retrieve online information via hypertext links, at the click of a button
- design forms for conducting transactions with remote services, for use in information searches, making reservations, ordering products, etc.
- include spread-sheets, video clips, sound clips, and other applications directly in their documents.
Using HTML, developers can describe the structure of a webpage using markup. The elements of the language label pieces of content such as “paragraph”, “list”, “table” and so on.
