HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is a standardized programming language used to create web pages and web applications. It allows describing the structure and content of a web document so that browsers can display the content correctly for users.
HTML can be used to define the various elements of a web page, such as headings, paragraphs, lists, and links. The <p> tag is used to define a paragraph, while the <h1> tag defines a first-level heading. You can also add images, videos and other multimedia content to the website. Also, HTML can be used to create forms that allow users to enter and submit data to the website.
Besides HTML, there are a number of other technologies for creating web pages and applications. These include:
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets): CSS is used to define the visual style of a web page, including colors, fonts, and layout. It allows web developers to separate the content of a web page (written in HTML) from its presentation (defined in CSS), making it easier to maintain and update the appearance of a website.
Together, these technologies form the foundation for creating modern, interactive websites and web applications.
BITS experts have used HTML as well as other programming languages in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
