What is HTML?
HTML was first developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990. HTML is short for Hypertext Markup Language. HTML is used to create electronic documents (called webpages) that are displayed on the World Wide Web or the Internet. Each page contains a series of connections to other pages called hyperlinks. Every web page you see on the Internet is written using one version of HTML code or another.
HTML code ensures the proper formatting of text and images for your Internet browser. Without HTML, a browser would not know how to display text as elements or load images or other elements. HTML also provides a basic structure of the page, upon which Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are overlaid to change its appearance. One could think of HTML as the bones (structure) of a web page, and CSS as its skin (appearance).
HTML works through tags < and > mostly. The directions are contained in a less than and greater than <, > and everything between the open and close tag is displayed or affected by the tag. Most HTML tags have an opening tag containing the tag name, tag attributes, a closing tag containing a forward slash, and the tag name being closed. <div> and </div> for division.
New elements include: <article>, <aside>, <audio>, <bdi>, <canvas>, <datalist>, <details>, <embed>, <figure>, <figcaption>, <footer>, <header>, <keygen>, <mark>, <meter>, <nav>, <output>, <progress>, <rp>, <rt>, <ruby>, <time>, <track>, <video>, and <wbr>. There are also new input types for forms, which include tel, search, url, e-mail, datetime, date, month, week, time, datetime-local, number, range, and color.
In HTML5 these elements no longer work: <acronym>, <applet>, <basefont>, <big>, <center>, <dir>, <font>, <frame>, <frameset>, <noframes>, <strike>, and <tt>. HTML5 also simplifies the doctype declaration to the tag with <!doctype html>.
