Hyper Text Markup Language

What is HTML5?

HTML is the abbreviation for Hyper Text Markup Language, and is the code, or language that is used for the creation of basic website layouts. It can look a little daunting if you've never done any coding before, but all you need to try it out is an ordinary text editing application and an internet browser. You might even recognize some HTML used to change text in online forums, customized online profiles, or even some wikiHow articles. HTML is a useful tool for anyone who uses the internet, and learning the basics may take you less time than you think.

The first web browser, Mosaic, was introduced in 1993. A year later Netscape, based on Mosaic, was introduced and the net began to become popular. HTML was used in both browsers, but there was no "standard" HTML until the introduction of HTML 2.0. HTML 2.0 was first published in 1995.* HTML 3.0 was published two years later and 4.01 two years after that. HTML 4.01 has been the work horse of the net ever since.

They say they have since kissed and made up. Both groups agree that it's going to take years to fully implement HTML5, though it will be in wide use long before then – assuming that, like eColi, they don't divide and multiply again.In many ways HTML5 is not all that different that 4.01. Certain tags, such as the font tag, that were "deprecated" (but worked) in HTML 4.01, don't work in HTML5. There are a number of other odds and ends that have been changed, but they tidy up old messes rather than introduce fundamental changes.

Open an HTML document ?

  • Most text editing programs, including Notepad or Notepad++ for Windows, TextEdit for Mac, and gedit for GNU/Linux can be used to write HTML documents. Open a new document and use File → Save As in the top menu to save it as a "Web Page," or to change the file extension to ".html" instead of ".doc," ".rtf," or any other extension.
  • Everything else in this beginner document will go in a body section, which actually gets displayed on the web page. After the end tag, but before the tag, write and . For the rest of this tutorial, everything you write will go in between these body tags. You should now have a document that looks like this (ignoring the bullet points):
