Level 0 HTML Summary

An HTML document consists of text and tags that mark the structure of the document. Elements in an HTML document are delimited by the tags which include < and >. Some elements have both a start and end tag: e.g., <TITLE> and </TITLE>. Other elements use only a single tag: e.g., <P> (the paragraph element). Some elements have attributes, which are qualifications of the element's meaning or optional parameters for that element.

A Level 0 HTML document can include the following elements with the attributes shown. In this document, the elements are listed in all capital letters (e.g., TITLE), and the attributes are indicated by initial capital letters (e.g., Href). In order to benefit from the information in this document, view both its HTML source ( as well as its rendered form in a Web browser. The elements and entities are explained in the list below as well as demonstrated here in appropriate locations (e.g, HEAD elements are demonstrated only in the HEAD of this document; and I don't demonstrate the heading (H1...H6) within the list of elements).

Note that the different brands of browsers vary in how they render these features. The intent of HTML is that the browser designers have specified at each level of HTML a "basic set" of features that they should implement, so that their browser renders these HTML constructs some satisfactory way.
