Introduction to HTML and How the World Wide Web Works

How HTML Works With the Web

Remember how I said that your web browser takes the code words, like "text" and "image" and tells your computer what to do with them? Time to learn how that really works.

Unlike computer designers, internet designers had to write a language that could work on any computer no matter what the operating system. Yes, a language, like English or Latin or Spanish. In this case, it is called HTML or Hyper Text Markup Language. Every few years, a group of experts come together and agree upon new words to add to the official language and publish an updated list of those words. It's rather like when a dictionary releases a new version.
