  • OPEN THE TEXT EDITOR.
  • TYPE OR COPY AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING CODE.
  • SAVE THE FILE WITH THE NAME helloworld.html
<HTML>
<BODY>
HELLO WORLD
</BODY>
</HTML>

HELLO WORLD OUTPUT

HTML-UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF TAGS

Let us now understand the coding of the page and learn how the html is parsed by the web browser.

The text written in between <> are called TAGS. The HTML works on the basis of TAGS.

As soon as any tag comes across, the browser takes it as a command to start that effect. The TAG is closed by </> notation.

e.g.

We started with <HTML>

and ended with </HTML>.

UNDERSTANDING THE TAGS OF THE hello world page

The HELLO WORLD page is very simple.

As already discussed, there are two TAGS used in this page.

HTML and BODY.

<HTML> tag is the outermost tag of any HTML FILE.

The content of the page starts from the <HTML> TAG AND ENDS AT </HTML> tag. 

<BODY> tag contains the content of the page, the content which will be shown in the page is in the <BODY> TAG.

Rest of the tags are discussed in next lessons.
