Open HTML File

HTML file (HyperText Markup Language) is a format, a standard and it is also the extension that identifies the files that comply with the HTML standard.

HTML was created as a standard for the purpose of creating websites.

Web browsers are the main executors of this type of files, and since it is a standard, web servers must be willing to interpret and disseminate the HTML language in a way that is intelligible for the vast majority of users, that is, in a Web.

Browsers interpret the coding in texts, colors, images and hyperlinks.

The HTML format is highly interactive, however ordinary users can only view the final product, not the code, unless an error occurs, or the advanced user enables code view in the browser.

Some email programs also allow the use of HTML to format the text in a document.

Since HTML is a markup and tagging text language format, tags are enclosed in <> brackets, and most tags have start and end commands,where the slash '/' represents the end of the label   .

An example of starting an HTML document is as follows:

<! DOCTYPE html>









The HTML format can work in conjunction with JavaScript, CSS and PHP, especially the HTML5 version.

The HTML code itself is not a programming language, since browsers use semantic interpretation to read them, they do not need compilation and that is why it is said to be a markup language.

The code written in HTML file is directly analyzed by browsers and is a transparent process for the user.

To open, edit, create or modify an HTML file, a common text editor is enough, however, we recommend using a highlighting text editor or WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) so that the task is easier.

The following are some programs that you can use to open HTML files, along with the browser you are using at the moment to read this tutorial.
