What Does HTML Stand For?


Hypertext Markup Language

As you can probably guess from the title, HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and is a language used by web browsers to interpret and represent text, images, videos, audio and other mediums for people on web pages. HTML defines the structure of a website while other technologies their appearance (CSS) and behaviour (JavaScript). "Hypertext" describes the links between pages of content on the web that you can access immediately by clicking on said link. "Markup" refers to the method by which text, images, and other content is annotated to then be displayed. Examples of the these markup elemetns include <head>, <title>, <body>, <header>, <footer>, <article>, <section>, <p>, <video>, <ul>, <ol>, <li> and many more.

What is HTML Used For?

HTML was first developed by physicist Tim Berners-Lee at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in 1990 when looking for a way that researchers could share documents with each other. This was the foundation of the World Wide Web. HTML allows people to create and design web pages using elements such as paragraphs, headings, links, quotes, images etc. It is not a programming language, so doesn't have a dynamic functionality, rather it helps to organize and format a page. It uses simple coding to denote how each part of the page should look. For example, you could create a paragraph by placing the relevant text within 2 tags <p> and </p>. HTML is now an official web standard which is monitored and developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C

It is generally used to create basic elements of webpages. Whilst it can be used to code an entire website, more complicated websites will involve other programming languages in conjunction with HTML.

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language.(Hypertext Markup Language) HTML is the language used to create Web pages for display in Web Browsers. In short, it is the code for creating web pages, using tags and other commands that a browser reads and converts into the normal web pages that people see.Note:Browsers like Internet Explorer,Google chrome,Mozilla Firefox and Netscape Navigator etc can understand only html language.Simply we can say HTML is the "mother tongue" of your browser.For example webpages developed using java or .net languages are return in HTML language(browser understandable format) in order to diplsy on the browser.Example:Creation of the Textbox with the default value.<html><body>Zip code : <input type="text" size="5" maxlength="5" value="57464" ></body></html>With type attribute, you can tell the browser to create text box.With size attribute, you can tell the browser to create text box that accepts the no of characters specified in size attribute(limits the displayed width of the textbox).The size attribute only affects the displayed width of a text box but it does not limit the number of characters that could be entered into the text box. So if we are expecting at most three characters for an input, set the size of the of the text box to 3 and the maxlength of the text box to 3 as well. If you don't use the maxlength attribute to limit the number of characters to be put into the text box, any text longer than the designed text box will automatically start to scroll to the left. The following HTMl codeWith value attribute, you can set a default value for your text box.

HyperText Markup Language. HTML elements form the building blocks of all websites. HTML allows images and objects to be embedded and can be used to createinteractive forms. It provides a means to create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other items

HTML or HyperText Markup Language is the standard markup language used to create web pages.HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like <html>). HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like <h1> and </h1>, although some tags represent empty elements and so are unpaired, for example <img>. The first tag in a pair is the start tag, and the second tag is the end tag (they are also called opening tags and closing tags).The purpose of a web browser is to read HTML documents and compose them into visible or audible web pages. The browser does not display the HTML tags, but uses the tags to interpret the content of the page. HTML describes the structure of a website semantically along with cues for presentation, making it a markup language rather than a programming language.HTML elements form the building blocks of all websites. HTML allows images and objects to be embedded and can be used to create interactive forms. It provides a means to create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other items. It can embed scripts written in languages such as JavaScript which affect the behavior of HTML web pages.HTML markup consists of several key components, including tags (and their attributes), character-based data types, character references and entity references. Another important component is the document type declaration, which triggers standards mode rendering.The following is an example of the classic Hello world program, a common test employed for comparing programming languages, scripting languages and markup languages. This example is made using 9 lines of code:<!DOCTYPE html><html>  <head>    <title>This is a title</title>  </head>  <body>    <p>Hello world!</p>  </body></html>(The text between <html> and </html> describes the web page, and the text between <body> and </body> is the visible page content. The markup text '<title>This is a title</title>' defines the browser page title.)This Document Type Declaration is for HTML5. If the <!DOCTYPE html> declaration is not included, various browsers will revert to "quirks mode" for rendering

HTML stands for, 'Hyper-Text Mark Up Language'. It is the original way in which webpages are interpreted by a web browser. It determines the, 'look' and style of the page. When it calls a CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) file this can be a powerful way to control the style for a number of webpages - so that each webpage of a site looks the same. HTML consists of 'tags'. A tag is placed before and after a section of text to control how that text will look in the browser. Tags are placed within chevrons. Here is an example set of tags: <HTML>....</HTML> This example lets the browser know that it is dealing with an HTML webpage. The first tag appears as the first text in the webpage file and the last tag at its end. HTML files are typically stored with a *.htm or *.html file extension.

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It can be thought of as a programming language that is used to place text, images and other contents on a webpage. It is the foundation of almost any page you visit on your browser. Although not a true programming language (it doesn't process or manipulate data, it is only a language that defines layouts), it's a great place to start if you want to get involved with computers, primarily because it's exciting and you can see the results of your learning almost instantly. It's where I started.

Urgent tutor help

I have an assignment on Java coding need help with it. The assignment detail is below :

The overall aim of this assignment is to implement a simple graphics tool. This must be built as a graphical application using the Java Swing and AWT classes. The software will allow users to type in simple commands which cause a “pen” to move around a virtual canvas area drawing lines as it moves. The final product should be a fully working application which includes a typical application window, containing a menu bar and supporting dialogue boxes.

As well as implementing a programmatic solution to the defined requirements, you are required to submit a graphical representation of your final solution as a Unified Modelling Language (UML) class model. This class model should show all classes used in your solution, along with all attributes and methods which you yourself have written. Although classes used from the Swing library should be shown there is no need to display their attributes and methods.

Requirement 1 – basic application

The first requirement is to develop a simple GUI which contains an outer window (frame), a canvas drawing area, a console type text input area, and a menu bar. The menu bar should contain at least a ‘File’ and a ‘Help’ menu. The ‘File’ menu should contain the options “New”, “Load”, “Save” and “Exit”. The ‘Help’ menu should contain an “About” option. The application window should be resizable by the user. For this first requirement the menu options should simply act as stubs, later requirements will provide the actual functionality. When selected each option should pop–up a dialogue saying that the option has been selected.

Requirement 2 – command support

The second requirement is to implement some basic commands to allow drawing. The users should be able to type in these commands within the console text area. The “New” menu option should cause the canvas to be cleared. The application should be able to spot invalid commands and report this to the user.

The commands to be supported are shown in the following table.

Command:Description penup: Lifts the pen from the canvas, so that movement does not get shown. pendown : Places the pen down on the canvas so movement gets shown as a drawn line. left : Turn the direction 90 degrees to the left. right : Turn the direction 90 degrees to the right. forward : Move forward the specified distance. back : Move backwards the specified distance. red : Sets the output pen colour to red. green: Sets the output pen colour to green. blue : Sets the output pen colour to blue. reset: Resets the canvas to its initial state.

Java Assignment

Hi. I am stuck on this question. Any help will be appreciated. The overall aim of this assignment is to implement a simple graphics tool. This must be built as a graphical application using the Java Swing and/or AWT classes. The software will allow users to type in simple commands which cause a virtual pen (sometimes it is also called a turtle after the Logo programming language which was popular in schools in the 1980s) to move around a virtual canvas area drawing lines as it moves. The final product should be a fully working application which includes a typical application window, containing a menu bar and supporting dialogue boxes. You should use GraphicsPanel.java inside your program. It sets up a canvas for you to draw on and displays a simple turtle. You can modify it as you see fit. Requirement 1 – basic application 20 marks The first requirement is to develop a simple GUI which contains an outer window (frame), a canvas drawing area, a console type text input area, and a menu bar. Themenu bar should contain at least a ‘File’ and a ‘Help’ menu. The ‘File’ menu should contain the options “New”, “Load”, “Save” and “Exit”. The ‘Help’ menu should contain an “About” option. The application window should be resizable by the user. For this first requirement the menu options can be blank and have no attached functionality, subsequent requirements will provide the actual functionality. When selected each option should pop–up a dialogue saying that the option has been selected. Program runs Panel for drawing is displayed You need to demonstrate that the panel can be drawn on (note if you have implemented subsequent requirements they will do this). Console text area Note this could be the console itself or some sort of component such as a TextArea or TextField. You need to demonstrate that text can be entered and minimally echoed back (note if you have implemented subsequent requirements they will do this). (5 marks) File Menu Items with pop ups for each New (1 mark) Load (1 mark) Save (1 mark) Exit (1 mark) Help Menu About (1 mark) UML Diagram (10 marks) Should show internal detail of your classes (including GraphicsScreen.java). Any Swing/AWT classes or other external classes should be shown as boxes only. Requirement 2 – command support 35 marks The second requirement is to implement some basic commands to allow drawing. The users should be able to type in these commands within the console text area. The “New” menu option should cause the canvas to be cleared. The application should be able to spot invalid commands and report this to the user. The commands to be supported are very explicit and MUST match those shown in the following table. The command must be typed in by the user and not selected from a menu as some of them will have parameters which MUST be typed with the command, for example “forward 90”. The parameters must not be entered separately, either after the command or in a separate text field. These commands must not be entered using separate textfields for command and parameter. When the program first runs the turtle/pen should be set to the middle of the canvas and point down the screen and the pen should be set to “down”. Hence if the first command was “forward 100” a line from the middle of the screen to nearer the bottom would be drawn. Requirement 3 – loading, saving and exiting. 20 marks The main aim of requirement three is to implement the remaining menu options. The “Load” and “Save” should allow the user to select a file name via a dialogue box. The current image should then be either loaded or saved to a file. If the user attempts to load a new image without the current one been saved first then a warning dialogue should be shown to the user, which should provide the opportunity for the current image to be saved first. The “Exit” and “About” menu options should also be completed. During exit a similar check should be made to see whether the user is attempting to exit without saving changes.
