HTML5

HTML (acronym for Hypertext Markup Language) is a markup language that creates the structure and displays content on web pages and applications for the World Wide Web (WWW). The language includes elements, tags, attributes, events, etc. The tags consist of an opening <> and must be closed at the end properly with </>. There are many versions of HTML that date back to the 90s, and HTML5 is currently the fifth version and introduces new features to refine the design and structure of web pages and applications. Browsers that support this markup language include Google Chrome, IE, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, etc.; they don't actually display HTML tags, but instead uses them to render the contents of the page.

HTML documents are structured as follows:

  • Documents start with declaring the code <!DOCTYPE html> at the beginning of the file to indicate what version of HTML the page is written in
  • The document itself is written between <html> and </html>
  • All of the markup language is written between <body> and </body>
  • <head> carries metadata about the document
  • <body> is where all of the elements, tags, attributes, events, etc. are displayed on the WWW

How we use it

HTML5 is one of our primary languages to display content on web pages and mobile apps. We combine it with any frameworks at our disposal and any programming language to make it dynamic. We also provide the tags with standard classes and ids to stylize with CSS in a stylesheet, as well as titles and alt tags for ones that have it for SEO.
