HTML is the structure and backbone of a website. HTML is one of the big three core components of the web, alongside other front-end technologies CSS and JavaScript, and it plays a part in the front-end code of nearly every website on the web. The general layout or way in which content is displayed in a browser is described via HTML—all the static structure, organization, and content.

HTML files use “tags” to tell a browser how to display specific pieces of text, then all other dynamic aspects of a site can be embedded into that file—e.g., a PHP script to add interactivity, server-side scripts that connect the site to the database, and CSS files that add stylistic elements. These files can all be linked out of the HTML file, making it like the backbone of the site’s code.
