HTML is a markup language. It is used to code web pages. It sets the layout and visual presentation of a web page. You can view the HTML used to make any page, even this page with a right click and then “view source”.
HTML allows you to use images, objects, form and videos into a web page. Thus, you get a good looking page that combines good things at one place. It was developed by W3C & WHATWG and initiated by Tim Berners Lee.
