Homework 3

Checkpoint 2.1

  1. Tim Berners-Lee at CERN developed HTML using SGML. HTML is meant for display on a webpage and is the set of markup symbols or codes that are placed in a file. Paragraphs, headings, and lists are structural elements that are identified through the markup symbols and codes. HTML can also place pictures, video, and audio on a webpage. The actual browser explains the markup code and makes the page. HTML allows the platform-independent display of information across a particular network.
  2. The software to create and code web pages is not expensive. Windows and Mac have a text editor application that is apart of the system. You can also download free text editors and web browsers.
  3. The head element contains the head section. It is housed in head and a closing head. The head section contains a title element and a meta element. The body element has the body section.
