HyperText Markup Language is the language that makes the web.

HTML is written with tags. Tags describe what content is on a webpage. If you go to any website you can right-click and select "Inspect" to see the HTML that created that page.

<p>This is a paragraph</p>

You can also include comments in your HTML. Comments are ignored by the computer. Programmers often do this so people will know why something was done a certain way. HTML comments look like this:

<!-- this is a comment -->
<p>Welcome to the internet.</p>

This will display:


Welcome to the internet.
