Course Description

Start at the beginning by learning HTML basics — an important foundation for building and editing web pages.

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is a standard markup language used to create web pages. HTML describes the structure of a web page semantically and originally included cues for the appearance of the document. HTML consists of a series of elements that you use to enclose, or wrap, different parts of the content to make it appear a certain way or to add meaning to it. These elements are represented by tags, which you use to mark the start and end of an element. For example, you can use the <p> element to define a paragraph of text, the <h1> element to define a heading, and the <img> element to insert an image.
