Open Knowing HTML

Sir Tim Berners-Lee

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. HTML was originally created for research interest in the organization of CERN, a European organization that focuses on nuclear research. That organization is using HTML for sharing documents to other researchers at CERN. Physicist Tim Berners-Lee is the person who initiated the HTML for the first time in the world at the CERN organization in the 1980.

Basically, HTML is in charge of converting the ordinary text into active text for display and used on the web. HTML consists of a marker codes called tags that surrounds and separates texts and tags are embedded directly in a plain-text document where they can be interpreted by computer software. That has a specific function and purpose of the tag text (marked up).

HTML nobody has and is free for anyone, but you must remain subject to the rules set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), a non-profit organization whose task was to open technical standards for web. Technical standards can be obtained through http://www.w3.org.  Although managed by the W3C organization, but it has many versions. Here is the XHTML (XHTML is a stricter and cleaner version of HTML) version:

  •  XHTML 1.0 Strict is the most stringent in its rules. If you want to make a good document you must follow that instruction
  •  XHTML 1.0 Transitional is very loose in the regulations.
  • XHTML 1.0 Frameset applies only to situations when frames are being used to lay out a web page.

Of course we ask, is the HTML that we have made to follow rules set by the W3C or not? For this purpose, the W3C has made an online device is assigned to check validation of your HTML document. These devices can you access via http:// validator.w3.org. We recommend you to do this even if you use the service design template from blogger.com.
