What is a syntax?

All languages have a syntax. English, Urdu, HTML, JavaScript all have a syntax. In English, we learn when to write commas, full-stops, paragraphs etc. Similarly there are syntax rules for HTML.

HTML is a markup language that has ONLY one thing - Elements. HTML is a collection of elements. A combination of elements are used to build a webpage.

Rules of writing HTML Elements

1. All elements have have an opening tag


2. The Opening tag has the name of the element <elementname>

3. All elements close.

4. Either elements self-close <elementname />

5. or they close via a closing tag

<elementname> // Opening tag
</elementname> // closing tag

6. Elements optionally have attributes and attributes have value

<element att="value">

7. Elements optionally have children between the opening and closing tag


These children can either be more elements or simply plain text

        children of second element

        children of third element

It has a list of all HTML elements by category.
