What Are HTML Tags?

HTML is a markup language that allows you to create web pages. HTML tags are the building blocks of web pages, providing the structure that's necessary for the page to be visible in a browser. Tags are keywords that have to be written in pairs of angle brackets. The first angle bracket < > is the opening tag and the last angle bracket </ > with the slash is the closing tag. The syntax of HTML tags is:

The syntax of HTML tags is:

The tags come in pairs; E.g- <b> and </b>. The first tag of this pair is the start tag and the second is the end tag. These tags are also called opening tags and closing tags. It is important to note that when starting a tag, you must use the second part of the end of the tag to finish it. For example - <p> This is a paragraph. </p>

In other words:

HTML tags, also known as meta tags, are used to describe the information on a website. They are hidden from site visitors so they do not affect the aesthetics of your site. There are many types of tags that you can use for various purposes. Header tags are used to change the colors or font size of header text, while paragraph tags can be used to change the spacing between paragraphs.The most common HTML tags are <h1> for headings, <p> for paragraphs, and <ul> for bullet lists.

How many types of HTML tags?

There are two types of HTML tags. E.g.

1. Container tags: This type of tag has a beginning, content, and end of the tag. E.g. <b>.....</b>

2. Empty tags: Such tags have a beginning but the content of the tag does not end. Such as- <img>, <be>, <hr>,  etc.
