Html meaning

āchtē-ĕm-ĕl
(HyperText Markup Language) The standard document format for Web pages, defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Every Web page contains HTML tags (codes) embedded in the text that define the page layout, fonts and hypertext links. The link contains the URL (address) of another Web page on that same server or any server worldwide, hence "World Wide" Web. The HTML tags also define the graphic elements on the page, each of which is a separate file on a local or remote server. See hypertext.Since its inception by Tim Berners-Lee in the early 1990s, new versions of HTML have added features such as interactive forms, blinking text, custom backgrounds and tables of contents. To keep current, vendors have to update their Web browsers to accommodate the new tags; however, each new HTML version is backward compatible (mostly) with older versions.HTML Itself "Is Not" a Programming LanguageHTML was created as a markup language (the ML in HTML) to define how a Web page is formatted on screen. Although there are commands that accept user input and send it to the Web server, there is no "if this-do that" in HTML like there is in every programming language. In order to make Web pages behave like applications, JavaScript and PHP programming code are embedded within the HTML. There may be considerable processing at the server side as well. See JavaScript, PHP and Cascading Style Sheets.HTML5 "Is" a Programming LanguageBecause version 5 of HTML formalized the use of JavaScript programming, HTML5 is considered a programming language; technically a Web application development language. Among other enhancements, HTML5 added support for audio and video, which otherwise required auxiliary software such as a media player and Flash (see HTML5). See HTML tag, XML, XHTML and SGML.

A tag-based notation language used to format documents for the World Wide Web (WWW) in a manner that can be interpreted by a program known as a Web browser. An application of Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), HTML allows authors to insert hyperlinks that display another HTML document when a user clicks on them with a mouse.The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) RFC 1866 (1995) standardized HTML 2, the first version to be widely used on the WWW. HTML development currently is the responsibility of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). See also browser, hyperlink, IETF, SGML, W3C, and WWW.
