Do you know how a website is generated and shown to you when you go to read anything or buy something? HTML is the only markup language used to create web pages. It provides many sorts of tags like <li>, <h1>, <div>, etc. to show data in various structures. In this tutorial, we will learn about HTML and its tags in detail.
Here are some points about HTML:
Tim Berners-Lee invented HTML in 1991. HTML 1.0 was the original version, while HTML 2.0, issued in 1995, was the first standard version.
HTML is a rapidly growing markup language that has undergone several version updates. Long before its new standards and specifications were implemented, each version enabled its users to produce web pages in a significantly easier and nicer manner, as well as making sites extremely efficient.
