HTML Tutorial – 02 – Tags and Elements

By | January 18, 2020


The markup that defines HTML is called tags.
For example, we here have the break tag, which is used to make a line break. All tags are
delimited by angle brackets () and are case-insensitive. Most tags, such as the paragraph tag here

, have both a start and an end tag. The end tag is always the same as the start tag,
but with a forward slash before the tag’s name. This combination of start tag, content,
and end tag is called an element, in this case a paragraph element. Element is also
commonly used as another word for tag. Start tags may contain different attributes
and values, which are also case-insensitive. The quotes around the value, are only required
if the value includes whitespace or special characters, but it’s a good practice to always
include them.
