Usage

HTML tags mark the beginning and end of HTML elements and may contain attributes. They are used as follows:


<tagname>Element content</tagname>

<tagname attributename="attributevalue">Element content</tagname>

<!-- or, for the few attributes without values, simply: -->

<tagname attributename>Element content</tagname>

<!-- or, for the few elements without content, simply: -->

<tagname>

<tagname attributename="attributevalue">

Global attributes can be used with every tag, alongside the specific attributes listed in each page.
