    HTML is a markup language. In the olden days when there were only words on a screen, institutions would share information. Each institution had it's own way of identifying what was a header, what was a paragraph, what was a citation, blockquote, etc. So what they did was simply surround text with tags that identified what it was. <p> meant it was a paragraph, <h1> meant it was a level 1 header, <li> meant it was a list item, and so on.

    If you were to remove all the bells and whistles from a website, you should still have a document that can be read and understood logically. HTML identifies what it is. CSS handles how it looks.

    Some useful sites here.
    Use the Search facility. Single words often work best.
