An Introduction to HTML

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

What is HTML? How does HTML work?

HTML is a markup coding language that stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. HTML has a commonly known text phrase The Language Of The Web. HTML is, in fact, the language of the web!

Whether you're on Google, Safari, DuckDuckGo, or other search engines, just about every web page you visit is made using HTML. It works directly with CSS and JavaScript. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the decorative stylesheet part of a webpage, while JavaScript is its behavioral part. HTML, CSS and JavaScript are all taught together in web design.

Below is an example of what a basic webpage has in it when it comes down to HTML and CSS:

<!DOCTYPE html>



<title>Your Website's Title</title>

<meta charset="utf-8" />

<meta http equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />


p {

color: silver;

text-size: 14px;

font-weight: bold;


h1, h2 {

color: ff0000;

text-transform: uppercase;

text-align: center;

margin: 0 0 5px 0;





<h1>This is the largest and most important heading!</h1>

<p>This is a paragraph</p>



<button>Click Me</button>



So there we have it, a basic HTML page! If you want to test this code, you can copy its example, open your search browser and use this free code text editor through W3Schools. From there, paste it into the online code editor. W3Schools is among the most well-known websites that can teach you how to code, and let you code freely without having to worry about paying any money. It is 100% free to use.
