HTML is a markup language. What does it mean? Well, a markup language processes and presents texts using specific codes for formatting, styling, and layout design. There are a lot of markup languages (for example, Business Narrative Markup Language (BNML), ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML), Opera Binary Markup Language (OBML), Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML), Virtual Human Markup Language (VHML), and so on); however, in modern web, we use HTML. HTML is based on Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). SGML was basically used to design document papers.


There are a number of HTML versions. HTML 5 is the latest version. Throughout this book, we will use the latest version of HTML.

Before you start learning HTML, let me ask you to think of your favorite website. What does the website contain? A few web pages? You may see some text, few images, one or two text fields, buttons, and some more elements on each of the web pages. Each of these elements are formatted by HTML.
