HTML Structure

The structure of HTML generally includes the <head> tag and the <body> tag. 

The two tags, <head> and <body>, respectively represent the head and body of the web page. The header can contain the title, keywords, description and other content of the page. It is not displayed as the content itself, but it affects the effect of the web page display. <body></body> is the actual content displayed on the web page, and body tags are also called entity tags. The page usually contains many pointers to other related pages or other nodes. By clicking, you can easily get new web pages. This is one of the most important reasons for the widespread use of HTML, and there is a correlation between these. An collection of pages is a website.

Thanks to the rapid development of the Internet, the demand for programming languages has soared. However, HTML5 has the simplicity of a superset method, wide application scalability, flexible platform adaptability, and simple versatility. With these characteristics, HTML is becoming more and more popular.
