What is HTML?

HTML is the skeleton of all web pages. It’s the core of front-end development work.

HTML provides structure to the content appearing on a website, such as images, text, or videos. Right-click on any page on the internet, choose “Inspect,” and you’ll see HTML in a panel of your screen.

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language:

A markup language is a computer language that defines the structure and presentation of raw text.


In HTML, the computer can interpret raw text that is wrapped in HTML elements.


HyperText is text displayed on a computer or device that provides access to other text through links, also known as hyperlinks.


Learning HTML is the first step in creating websites. As you continue learning, you can layer HTML with CSS and JavaScript to create visually compelling and dynamic websites. For now, we’re going to focus on how to add and modify basic content on a page; like text, images, and videos.
