HTML:

  • HTML, to build websites and define their structure
  • CSS, to make websites look pretty by adding styling options
  • JavaScript, implement complex features on pages using interactivity
  • The <!DOCTYPE html> defines that the page is a HTML5 document. This helps with standardisation across different browsers and tells the browser to use HTML5 to interpret the page.
  • The <html> element is the root element of the HTML page - all other elements come after this element.
  • The <head> element contains information about the page (such as the page title)
  • The <body> element defines the HTML document's body, only content inside of the body is shown in the browser.
  • The <h1> element defines a large heading
  • The <p> element defines a paragraph
