HTML provides structure by using tags, which tell a text what to do. For example, HTML allows for paragraphs, page breaks, bold or italics, and much more. It's important to let a web page know that you're using HTML. You do this by starting each page with the <html> tag and ending with the </html> tag. For example, to make a word bold, the word is placed between the following tags: <b> word bold </b> . The first tag specifies where the bold should begin and the closing tag (/) specifies where the bold should end. Using these tags is the foundation for almost every page on the web. Therefore, HTML is also a good starting point if you want to learn to code.
If you want to make a text italicized, use the tags <i> and </i>.
You indicate underlined text with the tags <u> and </u>.
If you want to strike out a text, use the tags <del> and </del>.
This is just a small selection of the possibilities of HTML. With HTML you can also indicate which text should be larger or smaller, you can create paragraphs or entire paragraphs with it, you can align texts, determine which images will be shown and much more. When you start learning HTML you will automatically discover all the possibilities.
It is very easy to view the HTML of a web page, even if this page is not yours. How do you do that? Go to the page and simply right click and choose “inspect”. This way you will see all the code of the page. This is a fun way to see how HTML is applied in practice.
It doesn't matter what or to what extent you use the internet, everyone comes into contact with it. The vast majority are ultimately used by business and various industries. They also all use HTML. As the online world grows, the demand for people with technical skills will also continue to grow. Being able to code is a skill of the future, so make yourself future proof and start learning HTML.
