Markup language used on most web pages

The HyperText Markup Language, usually abbreviated HTML or in its latest version HTML5, is the markup language designed to represent web pages.

This language allows:

  • writing hypertext, hence its name,
  • semantically structuring the page,
  • formatting content,
  • creating input forms,
  • including multimedia resources including images, videos, and computer programs,
  • creating documents interoperable with a wide variety of equipment in a way that complies with web accessibility requirements.

It is often used in conjunction with the JavaScript programming language and cascading style sheets (CSS).
