HTML Elementary Tags:
Among all the HTML tags the most essential ones are heading tags, paragraphs tags and lines break.
All these tags are discussed below in detail:
There can be up to 6 heading tags in your table. Heading tags look like this: <h1> - <h6>. <h1> represents the biggest while <h6> represents the smallest heading. HTML automatically puts an extra blank line before and after every heading you put.
<h1>This is the first heading</h1>
<h2>This is the second heading</h2>
<h3>This is the third heading</h3>
<h4>This is the fourth heading</h4>
<h5>This is the fifth heading</h5>
<h6>This is the sixth heading</h6>
Paragraph tags are denoted by <p> tag. Your paragraph starts with a ‘<p>’ tag and ends with a ‘</p>’ tag. HTML automatically puts an extra blank line before and after every paragraph:
<p>The paragraph starts here and ends here</p>
The tag which represents line breaks is <br>. The distinctive feature of line break tags is that the starting tag and the ending tag is the same without any slashes. Line break tags are used when one wants to start a new line. Remember here we are talking about starting a new line not a new paragraph.
<p>The line <br> breaks <br> here </p>
To understand a comment tag it is important to first understand what ‘comments’ in HTML are. Comments in HTML are used to explain the codes. Although these comments are not displayed on the browser yet they serve as a help later when you are editing the data. Comment tags are represented by ‘<!-- >’. Below is an example of a comment:
