What are HTML Tags?

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language, which is the most widely used language on Web to develop web pages.

HTML was created by Berners-Lee in late 1991. "HTML 2.0,  the first standard HTML specification, was published in 1995. HTML 4.01 was published in late 1999. HTML 4.01 version is widely used and there is an HTML-5 version which is an extension to HTML 4.0. This version was published in 2012.

Please familiarize yourself with HTML tags.

HTML language makes use of tags to format the content. These tags are enclosed within angle braces <Tag Name>. Except few tags, most of the tags have their corresponding closing tags. For example <html> has its closing tag</html> and <body> tag has its closing tag </body> tag etc. Tags typically come in pairs, with a start tag and an end tag:
