Glossary H HTML

HTML

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language and is the primary web language that content is shown on your website. HTML contains a variety of tags that denote different types of content and have semantic implications in the eyes of search engines and default browser styles. The more orderly the underlying markup generally the more orderly a web page will display, therefore it is very important to understand the different HTML tags before structuring web pages. Where HTML is a mostly structural language, it also goes hand in hand with CSS for design and styling.
