What is HTML?
The World Wide Web's explosive growth is fairly unprecedented, although it parallels the early to mid-1980s desktop publishing boom. As personal computers became more common in homes and offices, people began to learn how to use them for creating documents and laying out pages. While early word processing programs were not terribly intuitive and often required bizarre codes to be memorised, people still picked them up fairly easily and managed to create their own-in-house publications. Suddenly, the same kind of growth is being seen as folks rush to create and publish pages of different sort. To do this they need to learn to use something called the Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML).
