HTML 3.2 Tutorial

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language which is a system for making documents with informational tags that indicate how the contents are to be presented and how various documents should be linked together. HTML specifies the grammar and syntax so that browsers (computer programs that interpret HTML documents) know how to present the document on your terminal.

The basic core of the HTML language was standardised in the early 1990s as HTML 2.0. In the years that followed, a number of new markup tags were suggested and implemented by a variety of browser manufacturers, finally culminating in HTML 3.2. However, nothing stands still in cyberspace and HTML continues to evolve. This tutorial focuses on HTML 3.2 only.
