Produced by Tim Berners Lee in 1990, HTML is not long for “Hyper Text Markup” Language” and it is a language used to produce digital files, particularly pages about the Internet which contain contacts named hyperlinks to other pages. Every web site you notice on the web, including that one includes html page that helps display and format text and pictures within an easy-to read format.

Without HTML a visitor could just show plaintext without any format that contained no links and wouldn’t understand how to format a full page. HTML documents imply a structure of nested HTML elements. These are indicated in the document by HTML tags, enclosed in angle brackets thus: 

In the simple, general case, the extent of an element is indicated by a pair of tags: a “start tag” 

 and “end tag” 

. The text content of the element, if any, is placed between these tags.

Tags may also enclose further tag markup between the start and end, including a mixture of tags and text. This indicates further (nested) elements, as children of the parent element.
