A Simple HTML Document

<!DOCTYPE html><html> <head> <title>Page Title</title> </head> <body><h1>My First Heading</h1> <p>My first paragraph.</p></body> </html> Example Explained The <!DOCTYPE html> declaration defines that this document is an HTML5 document The <html> element is the root element of an HTML page The <head> element contains meta information about the HTML page The <title> element specifies a title for the HTML page (which is shown in the browser's title bar or in the page's tab) The <body> element defines the document's body, and is a container for all the visible contents, such as headings, paragraphs, images, hyperlinks, tables, lists, etc. The <h1> element defines a large heading The <p> element defines a paragraph What is an HTML Element? An HTML element is defined by a start tag, some content, and an end tag:

<tagname>Content goes here...</tagname>
The HTML element is everything from the start tag to the end tag:

<h1>My First Heading</h1> <p>My first paragraph.</p> Web Browsers The purpose of a web browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari) is to read HTML documents and display them correctly.
