Basic HTML Code & Usage
The HTML code tags make up the HTML elements that give the browser’s instructions on how to interpret the code when displaying the page content. Tags can be singular (using only one HTML tag to give instructions like “<“img >), but most of them go in pairs, so you have a starting/opening tag and an ending/closing tag like “<>”html“>“ and “<“/html“>“. Between the tags is the actual content (mostly text) that is displayed on the visible page, the tags are not displayed. Although the HTML script is not very hard to learn, various websites or web hosting services offer website building or publishing software with WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors, which allow the easy creation and edition of web pages without extensive or no HTML knowledge at all. However, WYSIWYG HTML editors’ capabilities are limited and this editing model is criticized for generating code with lower quality (code redundancy or code with incorrect syntax called “tag soup”).
