What is HTML?

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a type of markup language that has become the standard for creating web pages and web applications that can be displayed or shared on the internet. It was first developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990, and has constantly been updated since then.

HTML is one of the most popular markup languages, primarily because it is easy to learn and universally used and accepted. Most people can grasp the basis in just one sitting. HTML primarily uses HTML tags to mark the text on the page that is created.

HTML makes use of HyperText, which creates special text called hyperlinks. These hyperlinks can be used to connect to other pages on the internet, leading to the creation of the framework of the information available on the World Wide Web.
