HTML is the language that describes the structure and the semantic content of a Web document; it consists of elements, each of which may be modified by some number of attributes. Content within a Web page is tagged with HTML elements such as
<div>, and so forth.
The articles here provide reference materials you can refer to while you develop for the Web. MDN offers references to all of the elements that comprise HTML, as well as for each of the attributes that control the behavior of the elements.
