HTML is Hypertext Markup Language. This is used to structure the page and to give meaning to the page. It involves a header, can involve a link to a resource, can involve an image. It is text that gives purpose and function to what is being created on the page at hand. Tags are enclosed in angle brackets and is a type of HTML element.An attribute is a name value pair that is separated by an equal sign =. We are learning HTML so as to learn the basis for setting up a page with content in it.

HTML is code used to mark up the content of a website; It will give that content certain attributes such as making it a hyperlink, or display it at a certain font. HTML is not a programing language.

HTML is used for giving websites their functionality;

So that we can build a website where users can interact with a smart contract.

A tag is a marker for a piece of content on a website, like a line. Tags mark the beginning and the end of the content.

The structure of an HTML tag consists of the name of the element enclosed in angled brackets;
for example the letter “p” for paragraph, or “body”, or "title"for the different elements.

An attribute is a pice of information that describes the element; it is not shown on the website but is there to recall and describe the element. The attribute has a name (used for targeting the content and changing it if desired ie. Style info etc) and a value.

The anatomy of an HTML document consists of the historical HTML document type descriptor that acts as key to make the document work [!DOCTYPE HTML ]. Then the whole document is wrapped by the html element in side brackets. In between the html and the /html, the start and end of the html document you have the title, and the body with the appropriate start and end elements.

1.) HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language and it is a code used for structuring websites.

2.) HTML can be used to fill a website with elements such as text, images, videos, or links.

3.) We are learning HTML because websites are like a portal into the content of the internet, and that content includes the blockchain. It is important to know how to use it for doing front end work with DAPPs or blockchain websites.

4.) An HTML tag is a set of instructions for how an element will appear on the web page. They are like parameters that provide specific properties to text for example.

5.) The structure of an HTML tag for example would be letters or words enclosed within brackets. These tags do not show up here on the forum post when I type them for some reason.

6.) An attribute is a way to add extra text or notes that will not show up in the published version of the web page.

7.) Anatomy of an HTML document consists of:
Doctype artifact
HTML element
Head elemant
UTF-8
Title element
Body element

I am new to programming but I have used HTML before when I was working for PDR Media.

Dots and connections.


#734

1. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is not a programming language, 
but rather - as the name may imply - a language to format content (text, images etc) 
that is to be displayed on the web.

2. Guess I kinda answered this one above. To add, I could say it does offer 
a certain degree of flexibility into formatting, as much as you can get 
flexibility from a static technology.

3. It familiarizes us with code, with using a specific language and "commands" 
to obtain what we want and we get used with the way that everything 
is structurally organized.

4. Simply put, it's what we see with "<>" and "</>". Effectively, it is the markup, 
meaning it's the element (not HTML element!) that determines what will happen with 
the content, according to the specific tag.

5. <X>Content</X>, where X = a given tag. In some cases  (eg. <img>) 
the closing tag (</>) isn't needed.

6. An attribute can be considered as a further description of a tag, if we want 
an even more specific result. Attributes are composed of the name and value. 
Both have to go within the opening tag.

7. <!DOCTYPE html>    - always
   <header> </header>  - contains the essential page info, that we possibly want
to be meta-info for SEO purposes

   <title>  </title>  - the page title, as we want it to be seen in the browser tab

   <body>  </body>    - the  content of the page, what we wish for the users to see
