What does HTML mean?

The short answer is that HTML stands for “Hyper Text Markup Language”.

HTML is the set of markup symbols or codes inserted in a file intended for display on a World Wide Web browser page. The markup tells the Web browser how to display a Web page's words and images for the user. Each individual markup code is referred to as an element (but many people also refer to it as a tag). Some elements come in pairs that indicate when some display effect is to begin and when it is to end.

Remember that computers are very bad at understanding English. In fact, they are bad at understanding anything. Sure they can memorize lots of lists and do addition really fast, but (at least so far) computers don't understand the “meaning” behind the information in those lists or the ‘purpose’ of those calculations.

HTML code is the major language of the Internet's World Wide Web. Web sites and web pages are written in HTML code. It's the basics in computer language.

HTML is a markup language used for creating Web Pages. The contents of each webpage are defined by HTML tags. Basic page tags, such as <head>, <body>, and <div> define sections of the page, while tags such as <table>, <form>, <image>, and <a> define elements within the page. Most elements require a beginning and end tag, with the content placed between the tags.

For example: a link to the iTech SEO Freelancer  home page may use the following HTML code:

<a href=" http://www.itechseofreelancer365.com/"> iTech SEO Freelancer </a>

HTML was designed to display data, with focus on how data looks.
