HTML | Popular terms on the website

published on : 13 September 2020

Each specification of an exact field has its own specific terms that like it or not it must be mastered in order to achieve a good understanding of what is being studied. In the world of website developers or website developers we often see or hear about HTML, CSS or javascript. But sometimes we don't or don't really understand what these terms really mean.

Before someone jumps into the world of developer, he must know these terms. Website developers are not far from the world of coding. Coding terms will continue to be embedded in existing programming language terms as mentioned above, HTML, CSS, and so on. This coding will be useful for translating the wishes of the developer and the device used, this will be useful as a way of communication between the developer and the device.

Well, to keep the contents of this article from widening from the title of this article, the author will not go at length anymore. These are terms that are often used by developers. These terms are presented in full as much as possible.


Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is a standard markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser. This can be helped by technologies such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and scripting languages such as JavaScript.

HTML is the primary web mark up language and it runs naturally in every browser and is maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium.

The web browser receives HTML documents from a web server or from local storage and converts the documents into multimedia web pages. HTML describes the structure of web pages semantically and initially includes gestures for the appearance of the document.

HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML pages. With HTML constructs, images and other objects such as interactive shapes can be embedded into the rendered page. HTML provides a means to create structured documents by showing structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, citations, and other items. HTML elements are represented by tags, written using angle brackets. Tags such as <img/> and <input/> directly insert content into the page. Other tags such as <p> surround and provide information about the document text and may include other tags as sub-elements. The browser does not display HTML tags, but uses them to interpret page content.

HTML can embed programs written in a scripting language such as JavaScript, which affects the behavior and content of web pages. CSS inclusion determines the appearance and layout of the content. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the former maintainer of HTML and maintainer of current CSS standards, has been pushing the use of CSS over explicit presentation HTML since 1997.

  • HTML function

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a language that uses certain signs (tags) to represent the codes that must be interpreted by the browser so that the page can be displayed correctly.

HTML functions to manage a series of data and information so that a document can be accessed and displayed on the Internet through web services. Specifically, HTML has the following functions :

  • Create web pages.
  • Display various information in an Internet browser.
  • Create links to other web pages with specific code (hypertext).

  • Difference between HTML and HTML5

You may have heard of HTML5? what is the difference between HTML and HTML? You may still suspect that the two terms are the same ?.

HTML4 (recently referred to as “HTML”) was released in 1999 and its newest version was introduced to the public in 2014. Known as HTML5, this latest version adds more new features to the mark up language. One of the advanced features in HTML5 is support for audio and video embeds. So, instead of using the Flash player, we can embed video and audio files on web pages using tags <audio></audio> & <video></video>. It also has built-in support for scalable vector graphics (SVG) and MathML for mathematical and scientific formulas.

HTML5 also introduces some semantic improvements. The new semantic tag sends information to the browser about the meaning of the content, which is useful not only for readers, but also for search engines. The most used semantic tags are : <article></article >, <section></section>, <aside></aside>, <header></header>, and <footer></footer>.

The following table provides information about the significant differences between HTML and HTML5:

1 Does not support audio and video without using flash player support. supports audio and video control with the use of audio and video tags.
2 Use cookies to store data temporarily. Uses SQL database and application cache to store data offline.
3 Does not allow JavaScript to run in the browser. Allows JavaScript to run in the background. This is possible because of the JS Web worker API in HTML5.
4 Vector graphics are possible in HTML with the help of various technologies such as VML, Silver-light, Flash, etc. Vector graphics are also an integral part of HTML5 like SVG and canvas.
5 Does not allow drag and drop effects. Allows drag and drop effects.
6 It is impossible to draw shapes such as circles, rectangles, triangles, etc. HTML5 makes it possible to draw shapes such as circles, rectangles, triangles, etc.
7 Works with all legacy browsers. Supported by all new browsers like Firefox, Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, etc.
8 Older versions of HTML are less mobile friendly. The HTML5 language is more mobile friendly.
9 The Doctype declaration is too long and complicated. The Doctype declaration is quite simple and straightforward.
10 Elements such as nav, header are missing. New elements for web structures like nav, header, footer etc.
11 Long and complex character encodings. Simple and easy character encoding.
12 It is almost impossible to get a user's actual GeoLocation with the help of a browser. One can trace a user's GeoLocation easily by using the JS GeoLocation API.
13 Cannot handle inaccurate syntax. Capable of handling inaccurate syntax.
14 Attributes such as charset, async, and ping are missing in HTML. The charset, async, and ping attributes are part of HTML 5.
