Netskills - Introduction to HTML

A simple HTML document can be created in a text editor using HTML tags that will be processed by the web browser as it displays the page. The tags define the structure of the document and the basic appearance of the finished page in a graphical web browser.

Hypertext and Hyperlinks

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. Hypertext is the means by which web documents can be linked to each other. Clicking on a hypertext link will take you to the web page or URL defined in the HREF attribute of the link tag.
