HTML Introduction

This section provides HTML documentation and HTML information. It describes HTML and XHTML which is very basically HTML with some simple additional rules such as all tags are in lower case and all attribute values are in quotes. XHTML is the curent World Wide Web Consortium standard for web content. This section also covers information and documentation about cascading style sheets (CSS) which is covered in this section's HTML Guide.

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and is the main language used to display information to web browsers across the web. This language is based on asc text and relies on tags which are surrounded by the asc characters < and >. The tags allow for what is called the markup which defines how the text between the tabs is displayed. Read the HTML guide for information about the various tags and how they are used.
