HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML documents. An HTML element is a piece of content that is surrounded by opening and closing tags. The opening tag contains the element name and any attributes, and the closing tag contains only the element name.
Here is an example of an HTML element:
<p>This is a paragraph of text.</p>
In this example, the
<p> element is the opening tag, and the
</p> element is the closing tag. The content of the element is “This is a paragraph of text.”
There are many different types of HTML elements, including elements for headings, paragraphs, lists, links, images, tables, and forms.
Here are some examples of common HTML elements:
<h1>: A level-1 heading
<p>: A paragraph
<a>: A link
<img>: An image
<ul>: An unordered list
<ol>: An ordered list
<table>: A table
<form>: A form
Each HTML element has its own set of attributes that can be used to provide additional information or to control the behavior of the element. For example, the
<a> element has an
href attribute that specifies the URL of the link, and the
<img> element has a
src attribute that specifies the source of the image.
You can find more information about HTML elements and their attributes in the HTML documentation.
