Welcome to the HTML Reference!
Everything you need to know about HTML.
What is HTML?
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language.
Think of it like a skeleton that gives your browser a basic layout of the page. In most cases, this is styled with CSS to look much better, as regular bare HTML can often not look as good when viewed as a web page in your browser.
Let's look at the HTML Structure of a basic web page.
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>My First Web Page</title> </head> <body> </body> </html>
