Congratulations! You’ve learned enough HTML to create a great website!
Before we move on to styling with CSS, let’s review what we learned in this lesson.
- html: stands for hypertext markup language, and is used to give a webpage structure.
- css: stands for cascading style sheets, and is used to style HTML elements.
h1 - h6: indicate text headings on a webpage. h1 is the largest heading; h6 is the smallest.<h1>Heading</h1>
p: used for non-heading text, such as the bodies of articles or company descriptions.<p>Description of company here.</p>
a: short for anchor and used to add links to other webpages. Anchor elements typically have an href attribute:<a href="http://codecademy.com">Click here</a> to learn how to make a website!
img: used to add an image to a webpage. Image elements are self-closing and do not require a closing tag:<img src="https://images.com/favorite.png">
video: used to add videos to a webpage, and uses multiple attributes and a nested source element:<video width="320" height="240" controls> <source src="https://movies.io/great-clip.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video>
unordered list: used to create lists on a webpage and requires li elements inside a ul:<ul> <li>list item</li> <li>another item</li> <li>yet another</li> </ul>
div: used to organize HTML elements into different groups, which can be given a class attribute:<div class="main"> <h2>Subheading!</h2> </div>
metadata tags: provide metadata about a webpage.
parent/child elements: used to describe HTML elements that enclose or are enclosed by other elements. For example, below the ul is the parent and the li items are children:<ul> <li>...</li> <li>...</li> <li>...</li> </ul>
