HTML Facts for Kids Fact Number 3: HTML Uses Tags

HTML uses many tags in order to create a website and for this reason it is known as a tag-based language. The tags of HTML are surrounded by angular brackets. HTML tags allow the browser to know how a web page should look. An opening tag tells the browser when to start something and an ending tag tells the browser when to stop doing something. There are many HTML tags and each causes an individual outcome. Two examples of HTML Tags are <b> or <STRONG> which creates a bold text and <p> creates a paragraph.

HTML Facts for Kids Fact Number 4: HTML Works Together with CSS

HTML and CSS work together in order to complete a website. CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and its function is to style the content on a website. CSS designs the website by adding specific colours, fonts and backgrounds. CSS adds the aesthetics to a website, while HTML creates the structure and organises the website. A website wouldn’t be made without HTML and it wouldn’t look right without CSS.

HTML Facts for Kids Fact Number 5: There Are Two Parts of HTML Code

The new main parts of a HTML is the Head and the Body. The Head contains the information about the HTML document, such as, the Title of the page, what version of HTML is used, MetaData information, author of the webpage and so on. The Body is the main part of the website and it is everything the public will be able to see on your website. Data stored in the <head> tag is hidden to the reader while the <body> tag  encloses all the data which a web page has and is visible to the user.
