Introduction To HTML
HTML is an acronym for hypertext markup language; markup there means it is plain text language. To prepare a document for the web, we need to markup the text with specific tags. In HTML, tags walk in pairs; one to open and one to close. Both of these tags are pretty much the same name except the ending tag is preceded by a “/”. Example to display “HOME” we would need <strong>HOME</strong>.
Element Vs Element Content
Element refers to the opening tag, closing tag and what is written between <strong>HOME</strong>. “STRONG” in this case is an element. The element content on the other hand would be “HOME”. Sometimes elements are empty, such as: <br></br>
Heading 1 – <h1>Heading 1</h1>
Heading 2 – <h2>Heading 2</h2>
Heading 3 – <h3>Heading 3</h3>
Heading 4 – <h4>Heading 4</h4>
Heading 5 – <h5>Heading 5</h5>
Heading 6 – <h6>Heading 6</h6>
