The Hypertext Markup Language (Html) for Bloggers.

PEDRO or POT, he’s a village boy and a grandmother's product. A man of many worlds. He’s a writer, blogger and shares his Stories Online.

The Man Behind the HyperText Markup Language (HTML).

It’s noteworthy that Sir Tim Berners-Lee–was born into a family of scientists: His parents, Conway Berners—Lee and Mary Lee Woods were computer scientists as well as British mathematicians—.

He’s generous to have given the web to the world for nothing. In giving the web away for free, he triggered a global wave of creativity, collaboration, and innovation unlike any other.

We are all grateful for his generosity. No doubt we're amid a digital revolution, but the free and open web is in severe danger from those who want to stop the free flow of information.

Sir Tim set up the web, ensuring everyone had an equal chance to succeed.

There was no need for any type of permission to use the internet for learning, earning, creating, and dreaming big.

The Comparison Between HTML and HTML5.

HTML5 and HTML are both hypertext markup languages used to develop web pages.

The HTML5 markup language introduces multimedia capabilities, brand-new tags, and APIs. It is the latest version of HTML.

Additionally, HTML5 supports audio and video.

Difference Between HTML Versus HTML5

HTML is the principal language of the World Wide Web (WWW).

A web developer uses it to create text, hyperlinks, and multimedia files for a website.

In 2017, HTML5 was released, and it is the latest version.

The Opening and Closing Tags.

HTML works by using various tags, including those for headings, tables, and paragraphs, to define the text structures. Each tag is defined using the <A> and </A> formulas. They are called an “opening” and “closing” tag, respectively.

For instance, we might use <i>type your text here</i> to change the text style to italic. The browser will render the content via these tags, then display it on the screen.

Interactive Website Would Need Cascading Style Sheet (CSS)+JavaScript to Be Operative.

To build an interactive website, you need to combine HTML with at least two front-end languages: Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) and (JavaScript).

The HTML Tags and Their Importance.

If you use these basic HTML tags, you’ll save yourself tons of time. HTML is incredibly popular, but you don’t have to be a coding genius or a professional web developer to use it.

In WordPress, the text editor will load much faster if you’re using the HTML version rather than the visual preview version.

Plus, if you know how to add HTML tags manually, your hands never have to leave the keyboard. That’s huge if you’re already busy writing away.

Creating a List (Text or Image).

Create lists with the <ul>, <ol> and <li> tags to list out different items. You can create either bulleted lists or numbered lists.

You can use image tags to insert photos by adding <img>. You can manually adjust the height and width of images to fit your web page, too.

Link tags, also called href tags, are tags that insert links into the body of your blog posts.

They allow you to link out to other content. You need those to improve your visibility online.

You can insert horizontal lines with the <hr /> tag. But remember: Be careful not to overuse these.

Formatting

Format your fonts to be bold, italic, or underlined with <strong>, <em>, and <u>. Try to use one at a time to keep the body of your text looking professional.

Enter in line breaks by using the <br/> tag, increasing your blog posts’ readability.

And align elements to appear on the left, center, or right of your web pages with the tag < “p align= left, center, or right”>.

Conclusion, adding these HTML tags to your blog post will enhance its appearance, boost its possibilities to shine, and probably save you some time and why not, money as well. So, it's all a good idea to take the bull by the horns when embarking on a great project like this of a fore-runner blog.
