What is HTML?

HTML (hypertext markup language) is used to create / write web pages. It is comprised of elements (tags) used to build web page content. HTML has become the basic language from which the majority of web pages are built. HTML is written, not compiled, and it is used, without changes, as a text file. The HTML language is able to be read and used by beginners, unlike most other programming languages. Most HTML elements are written with a start tag <...> and an end tag with content between.
