Hyper Text Markup language is the language of the web! Its used to format webpage's for the internet. You may remember the old word processors from the 1980's, or even type writers for that matter. HTML supports many of the same functions as these older counter parts once did, and in some cases, still do. HTML works in tandem with CSS to to provide a place holder for content and overall formatting for web pages. Just as a word processor is used to format text on a sheet of paper, HTML is used to format text, multimedia, and other data in webpages.
