What is HTML anyway?

Written on May 14, 2013 at 3:50 pm by Tamara

We understand that the world wide web is a big, scary thing for most people, so each month we’ll try to take a word, acronym or phrase and explain to you in simple, ‘non-techie’ terms what it all means.  This is DBG’s Digital Definition of the Month!

 

So, What does HTML stand for anyway?


HyperText Markup Language

 

Still doesn’t mean much to you?  That’s ok, it doesn’t mean much to most people, what we want you to know about HTML is what it’s used for!

An example of some HTML looks like this:

<p>Managing Director <em>(and ‘the Man’, or so he says!)</em> - Daniel Wilson <a href=”http://www.linkedin.com/pub/daniel-wilson/4/136/558“ target=”_blank”><img src=”images/linkedin-sml.png“ alt=”LinkedIn” width=”16″ height=”16″ border=”0″ /></a></p>

 

It is one of the languages used to create websites.  Basically a web designer will create HTML consisting of tags (e.g. <h1> <br>) and content, and then a web browser like Firefox will interpret that HTML to define the structure of the content and load all the bits and pieces the website needs – we then see the pretty website designs that we interact with!
