What is HTML?

HTML is a computer language devised to allow website creation. These websites can then be viewed by anyone else connected to the Internet. It is relatively easy to learn, with the basics being accessible to most people in one sitting; and quite powerful in what it allows you to create. It is constantly undergoing revision and evolution to meet the demands and requirements of the growing Internet audience.

The definition of HTML is HyperText Markup Language:

   1. HyperText is the method by which you move around on the web — by clicking on special text called hyperlinks which bring you to the next page. The fact that it is hyper just means it is not linear — i.e. you can go to any place on the Internet whenever you want by clicking on links — there is no set order to do things in
   2. Markup is what HTML tags do to the text inside them. They mark it as a certain type of text (italicised text, for example)
   3. HTML is a Language, as it has code-words and syntax like any other language


How does it work?

HTML consists of a series of short codes typed into a text-file by the site author — these are the tags. The text is then saved as a html file, and viewed through a browser, like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. This browser reads the file and translates the text into a visible form, hopefully rendering the page as the author had intended. Writing your own HTML entails using tags correctly to create your vision. You can use anything from a rudimentary text-editor to a powerful graphical editor to create HTML pages.

An excellent source of help for people learning HTML is www.W3schools.

They produce a wealth of information on their site for would be web designers and newbies. The site is free to view and has many articles with a snazzy try me out feature, where you can experiment with the code changes you've made.
