Hi,

You can use HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) for formatting if you like spending a long time doing inline formatting and  don't like CSS. HTML is the foundation of a website it contains the information that tells the browser what is on the page in terms of text, links, where to find images. It also gives priorities to text, is it a header? Is it a paragraph? Is it a sub heading.

You can also style individual words in HTML to make them, bold, italic, underline etc. It is like the skeleton of a webpage, it tells you what kind of creature you are dealing with and how all the limbs are organised.

CSS  (Cascading Style Sheet), is a sheet of instructions that tells you how your webpage is organised and what it looks like in more detail. It adds the skin, eyes, hair and clothes to our skeleton HTML. You can change the colour/font/size/style of large chunks of text at a time. You can use it to move blocks of text and pictures around on your page. You can also use coding shortcuts (like bookstrap) to make this even easier.

And finally Java script is the muscles and ligaments of our creature. It animates webpages, making menus appear and dissapear.

If you are really interested then websites like codeacademy or one of a thousand phone apps will teach you more and let you play with the code yourself.

I hope this helps

Hi,

Basically, HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is what formats a Web page. So the layout, images, links...everything you see on that Web page is used in conjuction with Java script and CSS to make the page you see. Without it, there would be no website or page.

Hope that helped!

Kind Regards,
