What are HTML Tags?

by Bhumika

HTML tags are similar to keywords in that they specify how a web browser will format and display text. In addition, A web browser can tell the difference between HTML and plain content thanks to tags. Additionally, The opening tag, the content tag, and the closing tag are the three primary sections of an HTML tag. Some HTML tags, however, are not closing tags.

When a web browser scans an HTML document, it does so from left to right and from top to bottom. Further, To generate HTML documents and render their characteristics, HTML tags are employed. Each HTML tag has its own set of features.

Moreover, Some key tags must be present in an HTML file in order for a web browser to distinguish between plain text and HTML text. You can use as many tags as you need to meet the requirements of your code.
