HTML Skeleton

Notice, too, that our simple example HTML document starts and ends with <html> and </html> tags. These tags tell the browser that the entire document is composed in HTML.[7] The HTML and XHTML standards require an <html> tag for compliant documents, but most browsers can detect and properly display HTML encoding in a text document that’s missing this outermost structural tag. [<html>]

Like our example, all HTML and XHTML documents have two main structures: a head and a body, each bounded in the source by respectively named start and end tags. You put information about the document in the head and the contents you want displayed in the browser’s window inside the body. Except in rare cases, you’ll spend most of your time working on your document’s body content. [<head>] [<body>]
