The paragraph <P> tag defines a paragraph of text.
The horizontal rule <HR> tag places a line across the page. So it's a visual feature.
This is emphasised text.
Most browsers display emphasised text in italics so I could have used an Italics <I> tag to get the same effect, but italics are meaningless to non-visual browsers.
This is strongly emphasised text.
Most visual browsers display strong text in bold font so I could have used a Bold <B> tag, but that is also meaningless to non visual browsers.
The Tele-Type <TT> tag tells visual browsers to use a fixed-width (typewriter) font
Many web authors use the Blockquote <BLOCKQUOTE> tag to indent text. However, not only should they not be indenting text (what does indented text mean to a non-visual browser?), but they are giving a false meaning to the text, even in visual browsers. They may be giving the impression that the text in between the tags is actually a quote, which it is (probably) not.
The Break <BR> tag is used to create a line-break within a
This sentence should appear below the previous sentence since a Break tag appears between them. This is not a meaningful tag, but it is sometimes necessary for visual browsers to keep a tidy appearance.
The heading <H?> tag tells the browser about the meaning of it's contents, but it conveys nothing about the presentation of the content. This way, each user can configure their browser to present the content in the way that best suits them.
The <UL> tag defines an Unordered List (un-numbered, or bulletted). The idividual items in the list are defined with the List Item <LI> tag.
The <OL> tag defines an Ordered List (numbered).
We use the Definition List <DT> tag for creating a glossary ( a list of definitions).
A Table is created using four main tags. The Table <TABLE> tag defines the overall table. The Table Row <TR> tag defines a table row. Within each row, the Table Data <TD> tag defines each cell (a column within a row). The Table Header <TH> tag defines the headings for each column and is used in the first row of the table.
|Column 1 Header/Label||Column 2 Label||Column 3 Label|
|Cell 1,1||Cell 1,2||Cell 1,3|
|Cell 2,1||Cell 2,2||Cell 2,3|
This is a scrap of text that uses the Pre-format <PRE> tag. The browser displays the text exactly as it appears with all spaces and line-breaks intact. So this line should have lots of spaces between words.
To make a hypertext link, we use the Anchor <A> tag. The part in the quotes section of the A HREF="" is the URL for the page we are linking to. While the part between the A HREF tag and the /A tag is the text that appears as the link in the browser.
This is a relative link to this document.
We use the Image <IMG> tag to include an image:
