Type: Markup language

Briefly explainedHypertext Markup Language (HTML) is, contrary to many claims, not a programming language, but a text-based markup language. HTML can be used to structure text, images and other content, but not to program commands, algorithms or loops as is possible with programming and scripting languages (such as JavaScript or PHP). HTML can be used to create web pages whose elements (e.g. font size, background color,...) can be formatted. CSS can then be used to design them.
