Definition of HTML

HyperText Markup Language is the original and the simplest display language for the Web. It defines the look of the screen background, the location of text and graphics, the appearance of text, (font, size, style, color, line breaks) and the creation of links. HTML uses simple commands called 'flags'. Flags are the 'Markup' part of 'Hypertext Markup Language'. Basic HTML lays things out on screen one below another, like a roll of paper towels. Basic HTML is not sophisticated. With basic HTML, if one thing changes on the screen, the whole screen is erased and the entire screen is redrawn.
