What is an HTML Document?

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2004 by | Filed Under: Computer Terms

Babs from RI asks:

What is an HTML document?

The short answer – it’s a web page. You see, web pages are nothing more than another type of document. In fact, they’re really nothing more than a page of text instructions that your web browser reads.

So what exactly is this HTML?

HTML is short for Hyper Text Markup Language . It’s the programming language of web pages (technically, HTML is not a programming language, but it’s the best way to explain it).

HTML gives your web browser instructions on how to display the HTML document (web page) you’re accessing.

If you would like to take a peek at this HTML stuff, open Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome and head to your favorite site. From the view menu, select Page Source or View Source (depending on your browser and version).
