How its look like, what are the basic syntax of it?
For that you have to use a open and close bracket with any one of a tag. Like below we used a p tag which used for write a paragraph.
<p> Write a some paragraphs </p>
There is bunch of tag in html like <h1>, <a>, <div>, <form> , etc. You need to do same as above open the tag, write content then close the tag.
But not a every html has required to close. For e.g <hr> tag which stand for Horizontal Row, don’t have a closing tag.
How does it Work?
Here is whole code with <p> tag. It works within a this parents tag, and inside by last <body> tag. You will only see the output in browser which is written in <p> tag.
Anything written in <p> tag will visual in the browser another part like <html> tag will not show.
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> </head> <body> <h2>My First Heading</h2> <p> My first paragraph. </p> </body> </html>
