Introduction to HTML

  • HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.
  • An HTML file is a text file containing small markup tags.
  • An HTML file can be created using a simple text editor.
  • Every HTML document begins with the <HTML> tags followed by two sections.

 Head Section

  • This section is used to specify the title of the document.
  • It begins with <HEAD> tag and with </Head> tag.
  • This is followed by the <TITLE> tag and end with </TITLE> tag.
  • It is used to display the title of the document.

 Body Section

  • This section contains the document itself.
  • The body section begins with the <BODY> tag and end with the </BODY> tag. It is followed by the text of the documents.

      Working with HTML

  • Start your browser (Internet Explorer / Netscape Navigator).
  • Select “open” in the file menu of your browser.
  • Select “Browse” and locate the HTML file we have just created.

Example:

“C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\FirstPage.html”.

  • Click OK, and the browser will display the page.
  • The first tag in HTML document is <html>.
  • This tag tells browser that this is the start of an HTML document.
  • The last tag in your document is </html>. This tag tells browser that this is the end of the HTML document.
  • The text between the <head> tag and the </head> tag is header information.
  • Header information is not displayed in the browser window.
  • The text between the <body>  and the </body> tag is the text that will be displayed in your browser.
  • The text between the <title> tags is the title of your document. The title is displayed in your browser’s caption which is in the control bar.
