Basic HTML Tags
Basic Structure of an HTML document
see details on tag structure
There are four sets of tags (<HTML>, <HEAD>, <TITLE>, and <BODY>) that define the overall structure of a standard Web page. They are the standard in which we will use in the class. Table 2 will describe the function of each tag set.
HTML is not case sensitive; therefore you can enter HTML tags in uppercase or lowercase or a mixture of both. We will always type HTML tags in uppercase. It is good form to be consistent when you type tags, adhering to a standard practice in your own HTML development.
These pages were made through TeacherTECH, the teacher professional development component of GirlTECH, which is sponsored by the Center for Excellence and Equity in Education (CEEE) with support from the National Science Foundation through EOT-PACI, RGK Foundation, the Verizon Foundation, Rice University, and HiPerSoft.
