Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)
Created: Last updated:
This is similar to HTTP. When we talk about the World Wide Web (WWW) then we should also be talking about the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). There would be simply no web or a Internet as we know it without HTML.
There are not many articles here (yet) because this standard is very well documented already. However, there is something new on the horizon—HTML5. Most, if not all, web pages are written at least based upon version 4 but the next version is almost here. As of this writing, the support for the new version in the current browsers is still weak. The more we get support the more I will add documents about things in HTML5 for sure.
First of some links to other sources. As I already said HTML4 is already very well documented so here are also some links focusing on that version.
Learn at W3C - Learn - HTML
WHATWG - HTML Living Standard
Tutorial at w3schools.com - HTML Tutorial
Following is an overview of my articles:
- HTML for dummies
Again, it not much yet and but as time goes by and HTML5 becomes an established standard I will have more and more documents added to this chapter.
