Web Development: Intro to HTML

In this video, you’re going to learn
about using HTML to add structure to your web pages. HTML stands for hypertext
markup language and it’s found on all websites across the internet. There are a
bunch of different HTML structures you can use on your web page including:
headers, lists, paragraphs, links and images. Let’s take a look at how to create a
paragraph in HTML. The sentence we wrote for our web page would look better if it was distinctly different from the title of the webpage. To separate the two, you need to let the computer know that all this text is a part of a paragraph and not the title. You can do this by creating a paragraph element. Most elements are made
up of three main parts: the opening tag, the contents to be displayed and a
closing tag. Tags are a part of HTML language and they signal to the computer the start and end of the element. In this case it’s “paragraph”. Tags let the computer know what we want to display on the screen and what we don’t want to display. That’s why I tags include special characters like the less than and greater than to distinguish from the content. Paragraphs
are just one type of structure you can use in a web page. Soon you will learn about a number of other structures that will give you even more power to customize
your website. Subtitles by the Amara.org community
