HTML (HyperText Mark-up Language) is a hypertext formatting language use in developing pages for the World Wide Web. Programs that browse the Web can display HTML documents containing text, images, sound, animation and video.


Any HTML document can include links to other types of information or resources, so that while viewing an HTML document that, for example, describes resources available on the Internet, one can click on the description of the resource and be immediately connected to the resource itself. Such hyperlinks allow information to be accessed and organized in very flexible ways, and allow people to locate and efficiently view related information even if the information is stored on numerous computers all around the world.
