What are the tags up to?

The tags are what separate normal text from HTML code. You might know them as the words between the <triangle-brackets>. They allow all the cool stuff like images and tables and stuff, just by telling your browser what to render on the page. Different tags will perform different functions. The tags themselves dont appear when you view your page through a browser, but their effects do. The simplest tags do nothing more than apply formatting to some text, like this:

<b>These words will be bold</b>, and these will not.

In the example above, the <b> tags were wrapped around some text, and their effect will be that the contained text will be bolded when viewed through an ordinary web browser.

If you want to see a list of a load of tags to see whats ahead of you, look at this tag reference. Learning the tags themselves is dealt with in the next section of this website, My First Site.
