HTML uses a unique type of coding. It uses something called "tags" which look like this:<<tag name>what goes in the tag</tag name>
Here are a few examples of tags and what they mean:
<html> - tells the browser that your document is in HTML
<head> - tells the browser what to put in the heading at the top of your screen
<title> "enter title" </title> - Tells the browser the title of your HTML document
</head> - ends the heading
<body> - tells you what will go in the body or main section of your screen
You can enter other HTML tags you learn in the body of your page to tell the computer how to display your text and pictures, as well as add links to other pages.
</body> - This ends the body of your page.
</html> - This tells the computer that the web page is finished.
To see what pages look like with their coding, you can use your browser to show what is called "the source" or "source". This will allow you to look at all the HTML language that was used to develop a page for the Internet.
