This article will show you some common HTML tags and briefly explain them.
First things first. What is an HTML tag? An HTML tag is a piece of code required to create a flowing website. HTML tags have many different uses and I am here to briefly explain many of the more common tags.
</html>-This tag is used to ensure this document as being a .html document.
<header></header>-This tag contains information such as the title, meta tags, and style tags which determine the page layout and more.
<font></font>-I love this tag. This tag can be used the same as the body tag but allows for font recoloring and resizing. This tag is used for typing the information that will be viewed on your web page.
<body></body>-I only use this tag to recolor the background of the page but it is commonly used to type all viewable content on your web page.
<title></title>-This tag is the title of your page viewable in the title bar of the viewers browser.
<!–: This tag is used as a comment in the HTML of your code and will not appear on the webpage.
<em></em>-This tag creates emphasis on all words typed between.
<embed></embed>-This tag embeds something onto the webpage.
<input></input>-This is used to input content such as drop menus, search bars, and option selection on your web page.
<ol></ol>-This tag is used to create an ordered list on your web page.
<p></p>-This tag creates a space between lines signifying a new paragraph. This tag is VERY useful.
Those are some basic tags and their uses. They are simple to use as I will demonstrate a few below.
<font size=3 font color=red>This tutorial is awesome</font>
<p><font size=4 font color=blue>Yes it is</font></p>
That is an example code in the HTML language and it is very simple to understand. I hope you enjoyed my article and thanks for reading!
