HTML TWOHyperText Markup Language
HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a page-description language. HTML supports text, graphics, and other resources, along with the instructions for presenting these elements in a browser. HTML provides facilities for multimedia presentations and for delivering applications that can run on the client's processor.
Tags in HTML indicate instructions. A browser can read any HTML tag that its interpreter has been programmed to recognize; there is, of course, a lot of industry effort dedicated to creating a standard HTML convention that HTML authors can expect to work regardless of the browser a user is using.
The student should be aware that while most browsers will display a page in the same way most of the time. There are some differences between browsers in terms of how they interpret HTML tags. Also the screen settings on your computer may affect the way a page is displayed. Therefore a web page may be displayed differently on two different computers due to differences in screen settings or the browser being used. For this reason it is often a good idea to look at a page under different conditions.
