Part II: HTML > HTML Overview

Chapter 5. HTML Overview

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the language used to create web documents. It defines the syntax and placement of special instructions (tags) that aren't displayed, but tell the browser how to display the document's contents. It is also used to create links to other documents, either locally or over a network such as the Internet.

The HTML standard and all other Web-related standards are developed under the authority of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Standards, specifications, and drafts of new proposals can be found at http://www.w3.org. The most recent work is the HTML 4.0 Specification, which is growing in support by major browsers.
