My First Heading

  1. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language which describes the structure of Web pages using markup. Hypertext means that it is the text which contains link to other texts and Markup means that the web would be a web of documents was the early thought for the web since the web was primarily used for research documents.

  2. a) Every web page you see on the Internet is written using HTML code.
    b) HTML ensures the proper formatting of text and images so browser may display them as
    they are intended to look.
    c) HTML also provides a basic structure of the page.

  3. If you dont learn HTML, you have to either be content with what the editor gives you or find someone who knows HTML and pay them for their HTML coding services. The best thing to do is to learn HTML, so that you can create the perfect web page for yourself, without having to pay others for it.

  4. HTML tags are at the center of how Web pages are formatted. An HTML tag consists of the tag name in angular brackets and may come in pair, which makes up the beginning and ending tag.

  5. The beginning tag consists of the name whereas the ending tag consists of the same name preceded by a forward slash ("/"). For example, the HTML tag “

    ” begins a paragraph, whereas “

    ” ends that paragraph. This is a syntax in HTML.
  6. All HTML elements can have attributes, provide additional information about an element. Attributes are always specified in the start tag and usually come in name/value pairs like: name=“value”.

Ex. []

Image have a set of size attributes, which specifies the width and height of the image.

  1. Every HTML document consists of two elements:

Head elements – provides page title and general page formatting commands
Body elements – put the main HTML text in this part.

  1. HTML (Hyper text markup language) it’s a technology that let’s you see contents in your browser.
  2. It is used to program websites with a fixed content.
  3. It’s good to learn HTML as a foundation for web development and blockchain development.
  4. A tag is what makes the browser recognise what type of content it has to show and in what way.
  5. A tag starts with an opening <tag>, has usually an attribute inside and finishes with a closing </tag>
  6. An attribute specifies some additional properties regarding the content included inside a tag.
  7. An HTML page always starts with the tag <html>, it has and <head> where all the info needed to the website that won’t appear as a content (title, descriptions, seo, scripts and so on), and finally the <body> where all the content lies. All these tags need to be closed
1. HTML is the structure of a web pages content.
2. To build a website structure.
3. To have a base to connect our dapps with the website.

5. opener "<" tag-type "h1" close of opener ">" "any content" close opener with slash as an ending tag"</" tag-type "h1" close of closer ">"
6. attributes r for example classes or ids that give tags the opportunity to give them more features / make them more individual.
7. the way to wrap website code, like <html> <head> <body>
  1. HTML is an XML-based markup language developed to describe hypertext websites
  2. Describing websites so they can be rendered by a browser
  3. To enable us to build a front-end for our smart contracts that we will develop
  4. A tag denotes the start and end of a section in HTML, like a heading, paragraph, table…
  5. Denoted in < and >, the end tag additionally starts with a /
  6. An attribute in HTML/XML is used to denote special features/charateristics of an element or tag
  7. <html>
       <head>... </head>

1-) A markup language that is used for orginizing the outline of the website.

2-) Used for building websites and their structer.

3-) We are learning because we will need to be able to make our code to interact with www and see the results of our hard work :slight_smile:

4-) HTML tag is basically is the definer for the markup language. It’s like instructions we give to the website.

5-) This is the structure:

6-) Attribute provides extra information for the element.

7-) Anatomy of an HTML document is the basic form of the HTML that it needs to cointain to display the needed thing in web browser. It’s type(so the browser knows what its dealing with), html tags(so the browser knows where to expect that type), head and body.(So the browser knows the spesific elements and context that html file contains for display.)


HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language.

It is standard language for displaying text, pictures, videos, and other media on websites.

It is important for any developer to learn because regardless of what you are building, you want people to be able to find a description (at the very least) of what you built. You can then show them on a website.

Tags are used to isolate content within any element you create.

Tags begin with a structure of ? and end with a /?, which indicate the entirety of the content in that element.
(? defined as the tag used for that application)
Attributes are additional content in elements that are not intended for the user to see. They are used to hold information available to the developer only.

All HTML documents begin with !DOCTYPE html tag, then follow with the html tag, and a head and body, at the very least.

What is HTML?
HTML is not a programming language; it is a markup language that defines the structure of your content. HTML consists of a series of elements, which you use to enclose, or wrap, different parts of the content to make it appear a certain way, or act a certain way. The enclosing tags can make a word or image hyperlink to somewhere else, can italicize words, and can make font bigger or smaller, and so on. For example, take the following line of content:

What is HTML used for?
HTML is most commonly used as the format of the online documents we call web pages. When you create a set of complete HTML documents having a similar look and feel and linking to one another, this is referred to as a website.

Besides creating complete web pages, you may also use HTML code fragments to create specific elements within an existing page. For example, some blogs and discussion boards allow you to include HTML formatting in your posts or comments, enabling you to add emphasis to key words, embed links, create bulleted lists, or use whichever other HTML elements are permitted by the website’s administrators. If you are a content contributor for your organization’s website, the website designer may have set up a content management system that lets you add articles or page sections within a larger, existing HTML page structure that controls page layout and site navigation.

HTML is also used as the document format of offline (stored on your computer) help and documentation bundled with the applications installed on your computer. When you activate an application’s help, typically via its “Help” menu or a question mark icon, the help content may appear within your web browser or a specialized help viewer.

Email also uses HTML as the format of rich text messages that include links, stylized text, tables, and other elements that cannot be represented in plain text. However, most email applications do not allow you to edit the HTML directly, instead providing you with tools to create elements and generating the corresponding HTML internally
