HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and it is a language used to create webpages. There are many other web languages out there, but HTML is different. HTML is the core language of the world wide web, the fundamental building block of webpages. Without it, there are no webpages. It all starts with HTML - the simplest but the most important web language.
With HTML you make your own pages and decide what text, links, graphics, forms, as well as other elements will appear on them.
Remember that HTML should not be used for styling and cannot display dynamic content.
The tutorials in this section have taught you how to build HTML documents by displaying text, links, images, tables, form elements, scripts, and more.

HTML 4.01 is the final version of HTML, which will eventually be replaced by XHTML. Not a completetly different language from HTML, XHTML is merely an advancement of HTML. With a stronger focus on adherence to standards and semantic code, XHTML is a stricter, but cleaner, and more efficient version of HTML.
