HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. It provides a structure for the content on a web page and defines how the content should be displayed to the user.
HTML5 is the latest version of HTML and includes new elements, attributes, and APIs to create more interactive and multimedia-rich web pages. It also improves the semantics of the language and makes it easier to develop web applications.
Here are some of the key features of HTML5:
HTML5 provides new semantic elements, such as header, footer, article, and section, to better define the structure of a web page.
HTML5 includes new multimedia elements, such as audio and video, to allow you to embed audio and video directly into a web page.
HTML5 provides local storage, which allows you to store data on the client’s device, so that it can be retrieved later even if the user is offline.
HTML5 provides a Geolocation API, which allows you to access the user’s location information, providing a more personalized experience.
HTML5 includes new form controls, such as date pickers and search fields, and makes it easier to validate forms using built-in validation constraints.
In this tutorial, we will be introducing HTML5 and covering the basics of HTML5 to get you started with creating your own web pages.
