Article Excerpt...
HTML, short for HyperText Markup Language, is the simple language at the heart of the World Wide Web. Created in 1989 by computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee, HTML was originally considered to be a solution to help scientists at the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The first website went live in August 1991. It was a page written by Berners-Lee explaining how to write HTML. To say it caught on rapidly is an understatement. Within just a few years of that first HTML document being published, there were already millions of sites, each of them written in HTML. HTML’s simplicity is not all it has going for it. Where many languages crash when they hit an unrecognized tag, HTML simply ignores anything it can’t understand. Beyond that, HTML has been able to evolve over time to embrace the design values of CSS and morph into a Semantic language designed to be read and understood by machines and humans alike.
