Stands for "Hyper-Text Markup Language." Today's software programs are created mostly in C/C++; today's web pages are created in HTML. Also known as hypertext documents, web pages must conform to the rules of the the HTML language in order to be displayed correctly in a web browser. The HTML syntax is based on a list of tags that describe the format and what is displayed on web pages. Fortunately, the HTML language is quite easy to learn. Even more fortunately, (so much for good grammar), most web page development programs allow you to create web pages via a graphical interface without having to actually write the HTML code.
