HTML html Tag Tutorial

In this section, we will learn what HTML <html> element is and how to use it.

What is <html> Tag in HTML?

HTML <html> element is considered as a container element and is used to group the entire elements that are part of an HTML document!

The <html> element is basically known as the root of an HTML document. The process of creating an HTML document starts with this <html> element.

Basically, whenever we want to create an HTML document, we first start with the <html> element and then within its body we put all other elements that are part of that HTML document (like the main body <body> and headers <h1>- <h6> and <head> etc.).

HTML <html> Tag Syntax:

<html> </html>

HTML <html> Tag Values

The values we set for <html> element are all the other elements that we used to create the target HTML document.
