4 Non-Popular HTML Tags 💻

HTML is an easy but vital markup language in the world of web development, everybody in the web dev field knows at least the basics of it, if not the whole language. So I'm going to tell you some non-popular tags that you should know about.

So let's get started!!

1. The progress Tag

The <progress> tag allows you to create progress bars using just HTML.

Check this:

<progress value="70" max="100">70%</progress>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You just need to specify value and the max value which is mostly going to be 100


2. ins and del Tags

The <ins> tag defines a text that has been inserted into a document. It underlined by the browsers automatically.

The <del> tag defines a text that has been deleted from a document. Browsers usually strike a line through it.

Check this:

<p>The price of the new shirt is <del>$50</del> <ins>$25</ins>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


3. The details Tag

The <details> tag is pretty handy for large documentation, it allows us to view or hide elements after clicking on the <summary> element

Check this:

  <p> is a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers. Cedits to for this line</p>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

4. The dialog Tag

The <dialog> tag defines a dialog box or subwindow. It also makes it easy to create popup dialogs and modals on a web page. You also have to use an attribute called open to specify that the dialog element is active and that the user can interact with it.

Check this:

<dialog open>Hola World! Garvit Here</dialog>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Why is progress not a void element? I don't see 70% used anywhere, unless I'm missing something.
