Introduction

How it Began In 1980, Tim Berners-Lee, a physicist who was a independent contractor at CERN(the European Laboratory for Particle Physics in Geneva, Switzerland), proposed and then made a prototype of ENQUIRE which was a system that researchers at CERN could use in order to use and share documents. In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee (who was working in a computing services section of CERN), Tim had the idea of enabling researchers from remote sites in the world to organize and put together information. But far from simply making available a large number of research documents as files that could be downloaded to individual computers; he suggested that you could actually link the text in the files themselves. ...read more.

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), it isn't a programming language; it is a markup language, which uses markup tags to make webpages. HTML tags(mark up tags), are keywords surrounded by angle brackets for example <html>, HTML tags normally come in pairs like <p> and </p> The first tag in a pair is the "start tag"(opening tag), the second tag is the "end tag"(closing tag) Newer, Enhanced versions of it The newest form of HTML is called XHTML and HTML5 (which came out in 2008).

HTML5 specifies two variants of the same language, a "classic" HTML (text/html) ...read more.

So there isn't much use for using HTML to create your webpage's. However whatever software is used HTML is a vital part of that, it might mot be used by us but will still work in the background.
