What is HTML?

  • HTML means HyperText Markup Language. It is the behind the scenes language that let’s us see stuff online.
  • Every webpage you look at is written in HTML.
  • You can think of it as the skeleton that gives every webpage structure.

What is HTML5?

  • Simply put, it’s the 5th version of HTML.
  • Since the original launch of HTML was invented with the web over 20 years ago, it’s been through some updates, so this is simply the 5 th installment of HTML.
  • HTML5 has new elements for presenting audio and video on web pages and allows for you to do some pretty cool stuff that I will show you towards the end of this course.
