What is HTML?

Essentially, HTML(Hyper Text Markup Language) and CSS are languages that are the foundations of the worldwide web. HTML— or “HyperText Markup Language”— more or less explains to your browser how to draw the website onto your screen. HTML is used basically everywhere to define visual elements like headers, paragraphs, images, hyperlinks and so on. HTML provides the framework for the page you're currently looking at right now. Don't squint and move closer. To see the code you'd have to open a Source tab. Or be Neo from The Matrix.

How to hire a great freelance Web Developer

Hyper Text Markup Language stands for HTML, an authoring solution used for describing web pages and documents. HTML is referred to as a markup language, which means it uses a set of markup tags within text files to express graphic, coloring, font and link attributes of a web page. Individual HTML tags describe different aspects of a document's content.
The purpose of a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari or Firefox is to interpret the HTML tags within a document and display a web page accordingly. The browser does not display the tagging specifically; it merely translates HTML markup to visually or audibly render a web page.
HTML is a standardized system for tagging text files for web page creation and display. Together with CSS and JavaScript, HTML is foundational to the design and construction of web pages, and also plays a defining role in mobile application development and web application development.
Typically, freelance web developers use HTML tags to describe individual HTML elements which occur in pairs, with an initial start tag, and a second closing or end tag, although occasional elements occur individually such as <img> (image) tags. Tags present specific information about an element by surrounding an item (for example <title>… </title> classifies a title for the document), whereas alternative tags may display content on a page precisely.  
Scripts created in programming languages such as JavaScript are commonly embedded in HTML directly to alter its behavior. Many freelance web developers use CSS (or cascading style sheets) to modify or enhance default HTML characteristics predefined in a browser in web design and development jobs. CSS allows you to specify aspects such as font, text size, columns and more. The use of CSS to more effectively define the look and layout of HTML elements, at the expense of presentational HTML, has been encouraged since 1997.
When Tim Berners-Lee was credited with the invention of the web in 1989, HTML was the publishing language of choice. Since then there have been multiple versions, the most recent of which is HTML5. HTML5 is the fifth version of HTML standard and was released in October 2014. One of the major evolutions in HTML5 is improved support for multimedia and modern web applications while absorbing earlier versions of HTML.
If you want web pages to behave in a certain way or produce complicated operations when customers interact with a website, such as form submission or score logins, developers commonly integrate programming languages such as JavaScript, PHP, and Perl. It is vitally important that any freelance web developer or programmer you choose has a strong knowledge of HTML, alongside related programming languages, to enable them to create dynamic and attractive web pages or applications.
Even with an increasing use of drag and drop web editors available to create dynamic websites, selecting a freelance web developer with strong knowledge of HTML code is non-negotiable.
Do you have a new website build in the pipeline? Are you making an upgrade to an existing web application? If you require an expert in HTML markup and related programming languages like JavaScript, Perl or PHP then search the top quality programmers available at Freelancer.com. At a fraction of the cost of larger web development firms, and available at a moment’s notice, your web project will be completed in no time. Post a project today and become the next BIG success story!
