Some HTML Tags And Their Definition (With Example)

  1. HTML Comment Tag (<!--.....--> Defines a comment)

    The comment tag is used to insert comments in the source code. Comments are not displayed in the browsers.
    You can use comments to explain your code, which can help you when you edit the source code at a later date. This is especially useful if you have a lot of code.
    Example: <!--ICICT This is a tutorial teaching HTML tags definition--> Note HTML comments don't show on browsers.

  1. HTML link tag (<a> Defines a hyperlink )
