HTML Styles

Example I am Red I am Blue I am Big The HTML Style Attribute Setting the style of an HTML element, can be done with the style attribute. The HTML style attribute has the following syntax: < tagname style =" property : value; " > The property is a CSS property. The value is a CSS value.

HTML Paragraphs

    A paragraph always starts on a new line, and is usually a block of text. HTML Paragraphs The HTML <p> element defines a paragraph. A paragraph always starts on a new line, and browsers automatically add some white space (a margin) before and after a paragraph. Example < p > This is a paragraph. < /p > < p > This is another paragraph. < /p > HTML Display You cannot be sure how HTML will be displayed. Large or small screens, and resized windows will create different results. With HTML, you cannot change the display by adding extra spaces or extra lines in your HTML code. The browser will automatically remove any extra spaces and lines when the page is displayed: Example < p > This paragraph contains a lot of lines in the source code, but the browser ignores it. < /p > < p > This paragraph contains         a lot of spaces in the source         code, but the        browser ignores it. < /p > HTM

HTML Elements

    An HTML element is defined by a start tag, some content, and an end tag. HTML Elements The HTML element is everything from the start tag to the end tag: < tagname > Content goes here... < /tagname > Examples of some HTML elements: < h1 > My First Heading < /h1 > < p > My first paragraph. < /p > Start tag Element content End tag <h1> My First Heading </h1> <p> My first paragraph. </p> <br> none none Note: Some HTML elements have no content (like the <br> element). These elements are called empty elements. Empty elements do not have an end tag! Nested HTML Elements HTML elements can be nested (this means that elements can contain other elements). All HTML documents consist of nested HTML elements. The following example contains four HTML elements ( <html> , <body> , <h1> and <p> ): Example < !DOCTYPE html > < htm

HTML Basic Examples

In this chapter we will show some basic HTML examples.   Don't worry if we use tags you have not learned about yet. HTML Documents All HTML documents must start with a document type declaration: <!DOCTYPE html> . The HTML document itself begins with <html> and ends with </html> . The visible part of the HTML document is between <body> and </body> .  Example < !DOCTYPE html > < html > < body > < h1 > My First Heading < /h1 > < p > My first paragraph. < /p > < /body > < /html >   The <!DOCTYPE> Declaration The <!DOCTYPE> declaration represents the document type, and helps browsers to display web pages correctly. It must only appear once, at the top of the page (before any HTML tags). The <!DOCTYPE> declaration is not case sensitive. The <!DOCTYPE> declaration for HTML5 is: < !DOCTYPE html >   HTML Headings HTML headings are defined with the <
