Hypertext Markup Language File (.html)

HTML, or HyperText Markup Language, is the standard markup language used to create web pages. It allows developers to structure their content using a series of elements that can be used to format text, create links, and display images and other media.

These elements are enclosed in tags that can be used to modify the appearance and behavior of the content. For instance, tags can be used to create hyperlinks, italicize text, or change the size of the font.

An HTML document begins with a <!DOCTYPE html> declaration, followed by an <html> tag that marks the beginning of the document. The visible content of the page is contained within <body> tags, while other elements such as metadata and scripts are placed within <head> tags.
