HTML basics

In HTML Basics we will cover some Basic HTML things like HTML Tags, Types of HTML Tags, HTML Syntax and More HTML Basics.

HTML Tags:

Tags are the Most Impotent part of HTML. Tags controls ALmost the Complete Web-page. In HTML, HTML itself is a Tag (<HTML>). There are Several Impotent Tags in HTML Like :
head Tag,
title Tag, body Tag ETC.

How To Write Tags :

We know that the tags are the Most impotent Part of the HTML. To control Web-page Output Data we use tags, But there is a Question :
how to write tags

Writing Tags In HTML is Very Simple, You just have to write your tag name Between These (< >) angle brackets without any Spaces, Just like This :


Got it?, Wait We Aren't Done Yet.

There is Two Types of tags in HTML :
1) Starting tags.
2) Closing Tags

Starting Tags and Closing Tags :

starting tags and closing tags are Defines Starting point and closing point of tags in the HTML Document. Just like Sun, Sun Always rise in the East and set in the West. Like the sun we can assume HTML tags, East is the starting tag of Sun and West is the Closing Tag of Sun.
In simple language Starting tags and closing tags shows where the tag starts and closes and where the Starting tags starts applying Effect on the Document and where the effect going to be end.

How To Write Starting Tags :

To Write a HTML Starting tag We just Write our tag name between these (< >) Angle Brackets without any Spaces,

Just Like This :
These all tags are The starting tags of HTML.

How To Write Closing Tags :

To Write a HTML Closing tag We just Write our tag name between these (< >) Angle Brackets without any Spaces,Just Like Starting Tag,
BUT with the slash (/). We need to add the slash (/) before the Tag Name to close the tag.

Just Like This :
These all tags are The starting tags of HTML.

How To Identify Which One Is The Starting and The Closing Tag :

Defenestrating Starting tag and Closing Tag is Very Simple. You Just need to find the Slash (/) in the tag,

With the slash (</html>), Tag is The Closing Tag.
WithOut the slash (<html>), Tag is The Starting Tag.

Exception : Tags WithOut The Closing Tags :

In HTML you might See tag without The Closing Tag Or Written As (<img/>) slash at after the tag name.

There are Some Tags Like :
This tags are written as ( <img/>
<br/>) slash added or Written after the Tag Name. Because For these kind of tags we don't have to close the tag. Like <img/> tag is used to insert and display Images in HTML web-pages. So image Will Start According to the Tag Placement But Ends According to Image Size or Given Size. So there is no use of Closing Tag. Thats Why We Don't Close These Tags Or We Add Slash <img/> After The Tag name.

HTML Syntax :

Syntax Is the Set Of Rules To write HTML Code/Tags. Like How And Where To Write which Tag. Simple Structure Of HTML Codding Regarding Tags Declaration: Where and which tag will Starts or Closes

HTML Syntax

    <title>   </title>

Tags And Its Uses :

HTML tag (<html>.....</html>) :

HTML tag is the main tag of HTML. Inside The HTML tag's Starting and Closing Tags we write all the Other Tags Like : Head,Title,Body ETC.

HTML tag Controls All The Area of the Web-page. From Title (Header) to Footer.

HEAD tag (<head>.....</head>) :

HEAD tag is the Head Of the HTML Web-page. Like The Syntax We don't just Write Title Inside the HEAD Tag. We also Declare our External Style Sheet/javaScript File ETC. Because when browser Render or Loads Our Web-page Data it will always gives First Priority to the Header Data.

HEAD tag Controls the header or Upper Part of Web-page Like Web-page Title and Web-page Icon.

TITLE tag (<title>.....</title>) :

TITLE tag is the Title Of the HTML Web-page. Like our Web-Page Name. Most of the Time we write our Web-page's Name or Title inside the TITLE tag.

TITLE tag Controls the header or Upper Part of Web-page Like Web-page Title..

BODY tag (<body>.....</body>) :

BODY tag Control The Rest of the part of the Web-page. most of the HTML tags Written Between the BODY tag.

Whole body/Display After the Web-page Title/Head.
