The HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is an SGML application for marking up documents for inclusion in the World Wide Web. It, along with the World Wide Web were invented by Tim Berners-Lee of the CERN High Energy Particle Physics Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. 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
