Who Invented HTML?HTML was created in 1991 by Tim Berners-Lee, the official creator and founder of what we know now as the World Wide Web. He came up with the idea of sharing information no matter where a computer was located by using hyperlinks, HTML-coded links that connected one resource to another, HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol), a communication protocol for Web servers and Web users, and the URL (Uniform Resource Locator), a streamlined address system for every Web page on the Internet.
What Does HTML Look Like?
HTML language, called tags, are words or acronyms surrounded by brackets. A typical HTML tag looks like this:
<tag> This Is An Example Of An HTML Tag </tag>
HTML tags are written as pairs; there must be a beginning tag and an ending tag in order to make the code display correctly.
How Do Web Pages Use HTML?
Web browsers read the HTML code contained in Web pages, but they do not display the HTML markup for the Web searcher; instead, they translate the HTML coding into readable content.
