8.2. HTML Tags

Elements in the HTML specification are indicated by tags. An HTML tag is made up of the element name followed by an optional list of attributes, all of which appears between angle brackets (< >). Nothing within the brackets is displayed in the browser. The tag name is generally an abbreviation of the element's name or the tag's function (this makes them fairly simple to learn). Attributes are properties that extend or refine the tag's function.

In the current specification, the name and attributes within a tag are not case sensitive. <BODY BGCOLOR=white> works the same as <body bgcolor=white>. However, values for particular attributes may be case sensitive, particularly URLs and filenames.
