Skill: Hypertext Markup Language (formerly Basic HTML)
(Hypertext Markup Language) - The language used to develop documents which are to be placed on the World Wide Web. As the name suggests it is a markup language. It contains a number of tags which indicate what facility is required by the writer. The language consists of facilities for a large number of textual features including paragraphs, headings, lists, and images. It also contains facilities for changing the look of particular elements of a Web page. An important part of HTML are the features in the language which enable hyperlinks to be embedded in it. When a document expressed in HTML is processed by a browser, it interprets the tags in the document and displays it according to the meaning of the tags.
