HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.
HTML help us to make a Website.
"Just like we need English, Hindi, Spanish or other languages to make a book. Similarly, we need Hyper Text Markup Language to make a Website."
In HTML, Hyper Text means Active Text. (Active Text is text which is clickable by the user and it helps the user to move from one web page to another.)
A Markup language is used to give definition and presentation of content. It is used to give size, shape, design, and color of the content in HTML language.
In the above, we have shown an example of Markup Tag in which the text "HTML Tutorial" is written in between opening mark up tag <h1> and closing mark up tag </h1>.
The <h1> mark up tag makes the text "HTML Tutorial" bold and increases the size.
Run the code to see the effect.
