What is HTML?

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language.  It is the computer language that web pages are written in.  Everything you see on the internet is code that is interpreted by your browser.  Here is the code for a simple page:

<html>
<head>
<title>
New Page 1</title>
</head>
<body>
<div align=
"center">
<center>
<table border=
"1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="70%">
<tr>
<td width=
"50%"><b>Hello World!</b></td>
<td width=
"50%">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>
</center>
</div>
</body>
</html>
