HTML or Hypertext Markup Language is the elementary building block in a web browser. It is the standard language for web browser pages and can be accompanied by CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) or any other scripting language. HTML gives a variety of options to construct images, forms, text boxes and many more objects. HTML provides a means to create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other items. In HTML the objects are written using angle brackets <>. Other tags such as <p> surround and provide information about document text and may include other tags as sub-elements.
With HTML CSS plays the role in defining the look and layout of the content of the HTML page. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the former maintainer of the HTML and current maintainer of the CSS standards, has encouraged the use of CSS over explicit presentational HTML since 1997.
