HyperText Markup Language

This is a guide to HTML, a standard markup language for web pages. A text editor and a web browser is all you need to create web pages, view your handiwork, and share information with others all over the world.

This book simply covers HTML syntax, not about how to make it dynamic—for that, see JavaScript. Cascading Style Sheets, a way of giving style to the markup, is covered only briefly in this book. Additionally, XHTML has its own textbook.
