HTML 101 - What, Why, How

I have started a Series in HTML.This is the first part in the Series.
Let's get started.

What is HTML or Hypertext Markup Language?

According to w3schools definition:

  • HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.
  • HTML is the standard markup language for creating Web pages.
  • HTML consists of a series of elements.
  • HTML elements tell the browser how to display the content.

In this part, we are not going to talk about what are the element or how element are structured.

Why HTML is important?

HTML is the base of the Web development. It is what makes a website. When you learn other language you might need HTML to implement a work.
It is free to use too. So i think it is important to HTML.

Some of the advantages to learn HTML

  • Easy– It is super easy to understand and learn.
  • Industry Standard- Accepted by all browsers.
  • Independent– It is platform-independent.
  • Hypertext– Link to any page internal or external.

Some of the disadvantages to learn HTML

  • Dynamic Pages– Creating dynamic pages are hard.
  • Not Centralized– Each page should be programmed separately.
  • Limitations– Alone HTML do not have many capabilities.
  • Security– It is not secure by its own.
