Introduction to HTML


What is HTML?
HTML is the language of the web. It’s what makes up the structure and content of every website you visit. But don’t worry, learning HTML is easy and fun! In this section, we’ll cover everything you need to know to get started with HTML coding.
HTML Tags and Elements
Now that we have seen what HTML is, let’s take a look at the basic building blocks of HTML: tags and elements. HTML tags and elements are the building blocks of web pages.
Anatomy of an HTML tag
HTML tags are the building blocks of web pages, and understanding their anatomy is essential for creating well-structured and meaningful web content. Each HTML tag has a specific purpose and meaning, and consists of several different parts, including the opening tag, closing tag, and attributes.
HTML Attributes
HTML attributes provide additional information about an HTML tag, such as its ID, class, or style. In this lesson, we’ll take a closer look at how to use HTML attributes to add additional information to HTML tags and elements.
HTML Boilerplate
An HTML boilerplate is the foundation of every HTML document, and knowing how to structure it is essential for creating well-organized and effective web pages. In this section, we’ll explore the basic structure of an HTML document, including the head section, the body section, and the essential tags and elements that make up the HTML boilerplate.
Formatting text in HTML
When creating a web page, it’s important to structure the text in a way that is easy to read and understand. HTML provides a variety of tags that can be used to structure text on a web page.
HTML Lists
HTML lists are a great way to organize information on a web page. They can be used to create numbered or bulleted lists, and can help make your content more readable and easier to understand.
Project: Your personal page
Now that you have learned about HTML tags and elements, it’s time to put your knowledge into practice! Your task is to create your own personal web page using the examples provided in this section.
The Div Element
The div element is one of the most commonly used HTML elements, and it is often used to group together related elements in a web page. The div element does not have any semantic meaning on its own, but it can be used to help structure the layout and styling of a web page.
Semantic HTML
Now that we have seen div tags in action, let’s take a look at semantic tags. Semantic HTML tags are tags that convey meaning to the browser and help improve the accessibility and SEO of a web page.
HTML Image Elements
Now that we have seen how to use text elements in HTML, let’s look at how to add images to a web page. Images are an important part of many web pages, and HTML provides several ways to include images on a page.
