  1. 1.  It was invented in 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau of CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), and announced on the internet by Berners- Lee in 1991. Tim Berner-Lee Robert Cailliau
  2. 2.  Hyper Text Markup Language It is a Language, as it has code-words and syntax like any other language. Also known as one of the document formats of the World Wide Web HTML is used to define the structure and layout of a Web page
  3. 3.  The fact that it is hyper just means it is not linear i.e. you can go to any place on the Internet whenever you want by clicking on links; there is no set order to do things in.
  4. 4.  Markup is what HTML tags do to the text inside them. They mark it as a certain type of text (italic text, for example). Markup language is a text-formatting language designed to transform raw text into structured documents
  5. 5.  HTML consists of a series of short codes typed into a text-file by the site author, these are the tags. The text is then saved as a html file, and viewed through a browser, like Firefox. This browser reads the file and translates the text into a visible form.
  6. 6.  Tells the Web browser how to display a Web pages words and images for the user. It determines the look and structure of a text like font type, size and color These websites can then be viewed by anyone else connected to the Internet and Its relatively easy to learn.
  7. 7.  Different tags perform different functions. HTML is written in form of “html elements” consisting of tags, enclosed by <angle brackets> within the webpage content for example <html>
  8. 8.  Attributes are always specified in the start tag Attributes provide additional information about an element Attributes come in name/value pairs like: name="value" Attribute Example HTML links are defined with the <a> tag. The link address is specified in the href attribute: Example <a href="">This is a link</a>
  9. 9.  Also HTML tags mostly come in pairs for example <h1> and </h1> <h1> is the start tag and (slash) </h1> is the end tag. In between html tags you can add text, images, tables, comments etc. The tags do not appear on the webpage but their effects do when you view it on a browser like Firefox or Google Chrome etc.
