HTML Help - Introduction
Firstly this is by no means a complete list of HTML tags but there should be many more here than you will need for T171. Most of you will be using WYSIWYG editors which means you do not need to know these, only people who are hand coding will need these. Please read on because if you are going to try something out of the ordinary it helps to know some of this when debugging faulty code and also dependant on how good your editor is will depend on how much of the coding it will do for you.
The good news is that HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is incredibly easy to learn.
HTML consists of a set of predefined tags that are included along with the page content. The purpose of these tags is to instruct the browser how to display the content i.e. whether the text should be displayed as a paragraph. The tags also allow for a certain amount of formatting of the information in the document, such as image positioning.
All HTML documents starts with <html> and end with </html>
Typical format of an HTML document follows:
- <title>My Page Title</title>
- Other head elements go here
- Your content goes here along with tags for formatting, setting colours, inserting images, inserting media such as music and movies
