About HTML5 Tutorial
Past of HTML
In 1992, Berners-Lee and the CERN team released the first
draft HTML 1.0, which was finalized in 1993. This specification was
so simple it could be printed on one side of a piece of paper, but
even then it contained the basic idea that has become central in the
recent evolution of HTML, which is the separation between logical
structures and presentational elements. This is the most important
single idea to grasp in learning HTML, IMHO. In 1994, HTML 2.0
was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force’s HTML
Working Group. This group later was disbanded in favor of the
World Wide Web Consortium (http://www.w3.org), which continues
to develop HTML.
What is HTML
HTML, which stands for Hypertext Markup Language, is
the predominant markup language for web pages. It is written in the
form of HTML elements consisting of "tags" surrounded by angle
brackets within the web page content.
The major points of HTML are given below:
- HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.
- HTML is used to create web pages.
- HTML is widely used language on the web.
- We can create a static website by HTML only.
It allows images and objects to be embedded and can be
used to create interactive forms. It provides a means to
create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for
text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other
affect the behavior of HTML web pages.
HTML can also be used to include Cascading Style
Sheets (CSS) to define the appearance and layout of text and other
material. The W3C, maintainer of both HTML and CSS standards,
encourages the use of CSS over explicit presentational markup.
What is HTML5
HTML5 is just the next version of HTML. The HTML5 specification was finalized in 2013 by the W3C. For the
previous few years, the specification had been in flux, still being worked on by the W3C working groups.
Browser manufactures have chosen to implement some of the specifications, but some high-profile
companies are backing off the technology (Facebook for example). Coupling this with the specification
previously not finalized, adoption has been slow.
About This Tutorial
This tutorial has been prepared for the beginners to help them
understand the basic to advanced concepts of HTML.
Prerequisites for This Tutorial
I'm not assuming anything in this tutorial. If you've never built a Web page
before, you're in the right hands. You don't need any experience, and you
don't have to know anything about HTML, programming, or databases. I discuss
everything you need.
If you're reasonably comfortable with a computer (you can navigate the Web
and use a word processor), you have all the skills you need.
- Students who are pursuing BCA, MCA, B.E/B.Tech (CS/IT/EC/EE/ME/Civil/Any other discipline).
- Students who have "HTML" in their curriculum.
- Candidates who wish to switch from service-based companies to product based.
- Candidates who want to continue their career as Web Designer or Developer.
- Candidates who are passionate about coding.
