HTML is a markup language. It uses different markup tags to describe web pages. The markup tags are also known as HTML tags. HTML tags are like commands to browsers.

The browsers like Firefox, IE7 etc. reads these html tags and the data between them and display them in form of formatted web pages. The browser does not display the html tags.


The HTML tags are used in form of pairs. These tags are basically keywords enclosed in angle brackets. The starting tag is known as Opening Tag/Start Tag. The ending tag is known as Closing Tag/End Tag. The end tag also contains “/” within the angle brackets.


<html>   </html> is known as tags.

<html> is Opening/Start Tag.

</html> is Closing/End tag.

HTML tags are not case sensitive.

Therefore “<body>…</body>” is same as “<BODY>…</BODY>”.
