Learning HTML is like learning another language, but it can be
attained fairly quickly right from your computer. There are many
tutorial programs that will teach you everything. HTML stands
for HyperText Markup Language and it is all about making your
letter, list, or document readable, and positioned in a certain
manner, by the computer. HTML created little “tags” that are
attached to the written text, and is necessary if you want to
design your own web page because the markup tags tell the Web
browser how to display the page. It positions the text where you
want it on the page. Without this markup language to “explain”
the locations of text, it would simply appear in wrap style. An
HTML file must have an htm. Extension on the file when it is
created, to identify it and a file can be created by using a
simple text editor. HTML is the universal markup language for
the web, and it allows you to format text, add graphics, create
links, input forms, frames and tables, etc., and save it so that
any browser can read and display. The key is learning the tags
which are used and this is what the tutorials will teach you -
all the tags and their applications.

The tags are important and are used to markup the HTML elements
which are surrounded by two characters which direct it. The
surrounding characters are called angle brackets, and would look
like, < and >. These usually come in pairs, one at the beginning
of the “element content” or the text, and one at the end, like <
b > the house is on a hill < /b > This is a small glimpse into
HTML. But the funny thing is, just like every other part of the
computer world, there is now a “new” HTML called XHTML. So, just
when you think you’ve got it – they come up with a better one!
Doesn’t it figure? Not to worry, there are tutorials for both
types now on the web, so you can take your choice. The
noticeable difference is that XHTML is somewhat cleaner and
stricter than the HTML, but still very similar.
