HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup symbols or codes added to a file, programmed for display on the internet. It is largely used as computer standard language in the creation of Web pages. To understand HTML in Mauritius from front to back, let us look at each word that makes up the abbreviation:
- Hypertext: text that is structured in order to connect related items.
- Markup : a style guide for typesetting anything to be printed in hardcopy or soft copy format.
- Language : a language that a computer system understands and uses to interpret commands.
- HTML is the structure of the house
- CSS is the interior and exterior décor
HTML defines the mark up of a specific web page. There are tags to create headings, paragraphs, bolded words, italicised words and more.
An element usually has an opening tag, a character, the content, and a closing tag and give information about the content they hold. Some elements are empty that is they do not have a closing tag. But instead have a source or a link to the content that you want to insert on the web page.
