This page lists all the HTML elements. They are grouped by function to help you find what you need to achieve what you have in mind. Although this guide is written for those who are new or newer to coding, we intend it to be a useful reference for anyone.
Basic elements are the backbone of any HTML document. You'll see these elements in the source code for all web pages after the doctype declaration on the first line of the page. The doctype specifies which version of (X)HTML that page is using. Page elements are placed between the opening <html> and closing </html> tags, also called the root element.
Metadata contains information about the page. This includes information about styles, scripts and data to help software (Search engines, browsers, etc.) use and render the page. Metadata for styles and scripts may be defined in the page or link to another file that has the information.
Content sectioning elements allow you to organise the document content into logical pieces. Use the sectioning elements to create a broad outline for your page content, including header and footer navigation, and heading elements to identify sections of content.
Use HTML text content elements to organize blocks or sections of content placed between the opening <body> and closing </body> tags. Important for accessibility and SEO, these elements identify the purpose or structure of that content.
