HTML “Hypertext Markup Language” is a text-based approach to describing how content contained within an HTML file is structured. This markup tells a web browser how to display text, images and other forms of multimedia on a webpage.

HTML browser does not display in HTML tags, but uses the tags to interpret the content of the page.
