HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. A html page can be created using normal text file editors such as notepad. A html page should start with <html> tag and end with </html> tag. This represents the start and end of a html page. A simple html page would look some like shown below
My first html page
Copy the above in to notepad and save the file as simple.html. Opening this file in a Internet Explorer or Firefox browser would display a web page with content as “My first html page” and page title as “first page”
<head>, <title>, <body> are some of the standard tags present in a html file.
<head> basically tells the browser about a web page like title, meta information etc.
<title> represents the title for a web page
<body> information provided here would be the content of a web page
