What is HTML?
In case you didn't know, HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. As the acronym suggests, it is a markup language, not a programming language (don't get the two confused). HTML works by creating elements (also referred to as tags by some) which contain information and have attributes to identify how an element should be used. Originally, HTML elements also had many attributes (and even a few elements) which were used to stylize the text and other things, but all of those have since been deprecated in favor of CSS.
That's all you're going to tell us?
Well, if you don't know what HTML is and what it's used for, there are already plenty of resources on the web that describe it, probably far better than we could. These pages are here to outline all of the elements available, how to use them, and where they'll work. If you want to read up on the history of HTML, what it is, who created it, and a bunch of other nonsense that won't really get you anywhere in the actual creation of a web page, try Wikipedia (yeah, we know, not a source, blah blah blah).
Note: These may not be the only attributes available to use with this element, but they are the most common attributes.
