  1. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. Is not a programming language but a markup language use for web pages
  2. HTML is used firstly to personalized web pages and give it a base structure. Is also use to add elements and hypertext references.
  3. Because the first step is built a front-end interface to communicate with back-end “world” (in this case the blockchain it self). In order to do this we firstly need to correctly develop a web pages with which interact. HTML is used to built the skeleton that then will be made dynamic by JavaScript code.
  4. HTML code is based on different elements. Each element is wrapped by an open and close tag, useful to recognize each element from the others.
  5. The open tag is < p>, where close tag is< /p> (in this is extremely important to put in the close tag the forward slash)
  6. An attribute as the word say give more specification to an element. It always put inside an element wrapped by the open and close tag (for example <meta charset=“utf-8”> < /meta>)
  7. Usually it start with < !DOCTYPE html> an element required as preamble to make sure that our document behaves correctly.
    Then there is a header element < head> < title> Example < /title> < /head>, this elements are not show to page’s viewers
    Then the element < body> than contains all the content that one want to show on the web pages.

  1. What is the structure of an HTML tag?
    a. Opening Tag

    : Consists of the name of the element (in this case, p), wrapped in opening and closing “angle brackets” . This states where the element begins or starts to take effect. Basically where the paragraph begins.
    b. Closing Tag

    : Is the same as the opening tag, except that it includes a forward slash before the element name. This states where the element ends
    Basically where the paragraph ends
  2. What is an attribute?
  • An attribute in HTML contains extra information about the elements that you can change or modify to provide greater information
  1. What is the anatomy of an HTML document?
    a. doctype> - sets rules for the HTML page to follow
    b. html> - wraps the contents on the page
    c. head> - contains page info that is not content. (keywords, page description, css, character set, etc…)
    d. body> - contains the contents of the page ( text, images, video, etc,)
    e. meta charset=“utf-8”> - character set of the document, to handle textual content

  1. HTML - Hypertext Markup Language

  2. It is used to control/design/construct
    text and images on a browser webpage.

  3. it is a good starting point into coding giving some basic function construction. Learning HTML is also a good starting point as coin/currency programming is web based(Web3) and it will give a good background of fundamentals and general grounding before you go into more in-depth coding.

  4. It is the “Prefix” and “Suffix” of an element.

  5. arrangement of and relations between the parts are to encapsulate and manipulate specific data/information (of the elements) an example below:

  1. An Instruction that contains extra information about the element that should not visually appear in the content.

<!DOCTYPE html>
Opening root element <html>
  <head> all non-visible content to the viewer that optimises the page. and a few otherthings I dont understand yet :)
    <meta charset="utf-8">  The "MASK" over the character set allowing it to be "universally" adaptable.
    <title></title> this sets the "Title" for the document for filing and searching  actions.
  </head> Im not sure of this part yet.
  <body>This contains all the content that you want to show to web users when they visit your page, whether that's text, images, videos, games, playable audio tracks or whatever else.
    <img src="images/firefox-icon.png" alt="My test image"> the image element
  </body>
Closing root element </html>

  1. HTML is not a programming language. It is a markup language that defines the structure of your content.
  2. It’s used to enclose, or wrap, different parts of the content to make it appear a certain way, or act a certain way.
  3. Because it’s the basic building block, the foundation on which you build.
  4. A tag denotes the start and end of a section in HTML, like a heading, paragraph, table.
  5. A tag starts with an opening , has usually an attribute inside and finishes with closing with a forward slash
  6. Attributes contain extra information about the element that you don’t want to appear in the actual content.
    The class attribute allows you to give the element a non-unique identifier that can be used to target it (and any other elements with the same class value) with style information and other things.
  7. Always start with:
<!DOCTYPE html> is basically just needed to make sure your document behaves correctly.
 <html>  This element wraps all the content on the entire page and is sometimes known as the root element.
the <head> element. This element acts as a container for all the stuff you want to include on the HTML page that isn't the content you are showing to your page's viewers.
<meta charset="utf-8">This element sets the character set your document should use to UTF-8 which includes most characters from the vast majority of written languages.
the [ `<title> This sets the title of your page
the [<body> element. This contains  all  the content that you want to show to web users when they visit your page, whether that's text, images, videos, games

  HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is a markup language that defines the structure of contents of a web document. HTML is used to create web documents/pages that are viewed in a web browser on the world wide web:)
 An HTML document is made up of elements which contain opening and closing tags, content, and attributes. HTML tags contain pieces of content and tells the content what to do. Tags include open and close angle brackets and a forward slash with the closing tag. Here's an example of an opening tag: <p> and a closing tag: </p>. The content is just that. It is the content within the element which is text. And attributes define the properties of the element and contain additional information about the element that you don't want to appear in the actual content. HTML attributes always go inside the opening tag of the HTML element.
  As an aspiring blockchain developer it is important to know how to build a website. When we get into developing dapps, having an understanding of the front end/user experience is a necessary skill.

Ans:
1 - HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). It is code designed to structure a web page’s content display order, including headings, sub-headings, paragraphs, images, alternate text, lists and (redirect) link(s). (hypertext reference)
2 - HTML is used for organizing and ordering a web page’s element placement.
3 - We are learning HTML so we can build and construct web pages. It is these type of interfaces that we will eventually learn, build later, for the purpose of interacting with the blockchain. (Smart Contracts)
4 - HTML ‘tags’ are a part of the element used at the beginning and the end. They signal the opening and closing of the elements contained content and/or attribute(s) constructions encapsulated. They define the starting point of an element and its ending.
5 - The structure of a HTML tag is a prefix, of the contents function, wrapped in open and closed brackets. This states the operation of the contents purpose. For eg. “p” = paragraph, “h1” = heading 1 ect.
6 - An attribute contains additional command information, such as what the texts form is (ie. Arial), but is wrapped within the opening and closing tag prefix block. This information does not show forth on the user interface (UI) web page output.
7 - The anatomy of HTML is the stringing together of various elements in the order of which they are to be viewed on the output display. (UI - webpage)

As one can see from the example of HTML basics from Mozilla each elements has a opening and closing element except for the preamble .
<html> wraps the content of the whole page
<head> acts as a container for the all the stuff you want to include on the <<htlm page but that you you are not showing to your pages view.  This includes things as keywords and page description you want to show in search results 
<meta charset="utf-8"> sets the character set your doc should use
<title> </title> this sets the tittle of the page that appears in the browser tab the page is loaded in

What is HTML?
HTML is a markup language.

What is HTML used for?
For making the interface on websites. It does this with providing a language we humans can structuring the content in a certain way we want it to be shown to the users of the website.

Why are we learning HTML?
To be able to make interfaces that users can use to later interact with our backend code on the blockchain. HTML and later Javascript is one of two important steps when creating dapps that not only need the code on the blockchain, it also needs an interface that users can interact with.

What is an HTML tag?
Tags are used to open or close an HTML element.

What is the structure of an HTML tag?
<”element name”> - To open an element

</”element name”> - To close an element

What is an attribute?
An attribute is extra non-visible information about the element.

What is the anatomy of an HTML document?
First we have the DOCTYPE = html which is some rules that are checking the html document to follow good practice. More important in previous years than today.

Then we have a root element in html that wraps all content that should exist to build the website.

The head element is where all the information about the website exists that we don’t want to show as actual content on the page for the users.

The body element is where all the actual content of the webpage we want our users to see is contained.

HTLM is the language used to build static websites. It is the basis for JavaScript, and further, Solidity.
An HTML tag is a part of the element; the opening tag is the name of the element and indicates where it begins; the closing element indicate where the element ends.
A HTML’s structure is an opening bracket <, followed by the name of the element, and ending with a closing bracket >
Attributes contain information that is not displayed on the web page.
The anatomy of an HTLM document is indicated below:
