CODING WEB PAGES (HTML, CSS, & JavaScript)

CODING WEB PAGES (HTML, CSS, & JavaScript): The three most common programming languages in the world are HTML, CSS and JavaScript. These languages are used to build web pages and web-based apps.

Using them together allows you to build web pages that not only look great but are interactive too. You are going to learn how to code in these languages.

HTML

Today, nearly all web pages are written using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) code. HTML was developed by Tim Berners-Lee in the early 1990s. HTML is a great way of creating the basic structure of your webpage.

HTML documents are made up of individual HTML elements. Elements are created using opening and closing tags. Each tag is the name of the elements enclosed in angle brackets < >

The content goes between the tags. Each HTML tag is an instruction to your web browser, telling it how to show the content on your screen.

Tags allow you to add text, images and videos to your web page and divide information into sections, such as lines or paragraphs.

An HTML web page is called a document. It’s made up of HTML elements.

Elements are created using small pieces of code called tags.

Tags nearly always come in pairs and surround every piece of content (like a piece of text or an image) on the page.

Each tag contains an instruction for your web browser, telling it how to show the element on-screen.

This is why HTML is called a “markup language”. You use tags to mark up each piece of content with an instruction for your browser.

About the Author: Bernard Aybout

In the land of bytes and bits, a father of three sits, With a heart for tech and coding kits, in IT he never quits. At Magna's door, he took his stance, in Canada's wide expanse, At Karmax Heavy Stamping - Cosma's dance, he gave his career a chance. With a passion deep for teaching code, to the young minds he showed, The path where digital seeds are sowed, in critical thinking mode. But alas, not all was bright and fair, at Magna's lair, oh despair, Harassment, intimidation, a chilling air, made the workplace hard to bear. Management's maze and morale's dip, made our hero's spirit flip, In a demoralizing grip, his well-being began to slip. So he bid adieu to Magna's scene, from the division not so serene, Yet in tech, his interest keen, continues to inspire and convene.
