HTML Elements

An HTML element is everything from the start tag to the end tag:

Start tag *Element contentEnd tag *
<p>This is a paragraph</p>
<a href="default.htm" >This is a link</a>
<br />  

* The start tag is often called the opening tag. The end tag is often called the closing tag.

  • An HTML element ends with an end tag / closing tag

  • The element content is everything between the start and the end tag
