HTML Basic

HTML Basic Examples

HTML, or Hyper Text Markup Language, is the foundation of web development. Let's explore some fundamental concepts:

HTML Documents

An HTML document is a standard file with a .html extension. It consists of elements that define the structure and content of a web page.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>My First HTML Page</title>
    <h1>Hello World!</h1>
    <p>This is a simple HTML document.</p>

Practice: Create a basic HTML document with a title, heading, and paragraph.

HTML Headings

Headings define the structure of your content. They range from <h1> (the largest) to <h6> (the smallest).


<h1>Heading 1</h1>
<h2>Heading 2</h2>
<h3>Heading 3</h3>

Practice: Use different heading tags to organize your content.

HTML Paragraphs

Paragraphs are created with the <p> tag. They provide a way to structure and separate content.


<p>This is a paragraph.</p>
<p>Another paragraph.</p>

Practice: Add paragraphs to your HTML document.

HTML Links

Links are created with the <a> (anchor) tag. They can point to other web pages, files, or locations within the same page.


<a href="">Visit our website</a>

Practice: Add a link to an external website in your document.

HTML Images

Images are displayed with the <img> tag. Provide the image source using the src attribute.


<img src="image.jpg" alt="Description of the image">

Practice: Insert an image into your HTML document.
