The HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is an SGML application for marking up documents for inclusion in the World Wide Web. HTML allows you to:
Publish documents to the Internet in a platform independent format
Create links to related works from your document
Include graphics and multimedia data with your document
Link to non-World Wide Web information resources on the Internet
HTML was originally intended to be used for encoding document structures. While there are now many formatting and formatting-like tags, there are also numerous tags that apply to text structures like headings, paragraphs and tables.
