HTML (Wordhole)

From XPUB & Lens-Based wiki


HTML (or Hyper Text Markup Language) is a programming language used to display hypertext in a webbrowser, using .html files. Hypertext is a method that allows cross-referencing content by the usage of links. HTML consists of tags, such as:

<h1>I'm a heading</h1>
<a href="">Superlink</a>

Formatting your documents using HTML allows a browser to interpert your content directly, which in turn "displays" your content as decided upon in the browser protocols, the web standards of W3C, enhancing the accessability of the content.

HTML is only meant to **structure** your content. Any aesthetics can be applied using CSS, and additional interaction can be created using Javascript.
