HTML tags are similar to keywords, or hidden keywords. The web browser must be able to determine how it displays the contents. The majority of tags comprise three primary components that are open tags and a center content and close tag.

For instance, the start tag is the beginning of the tag. The content is there… along with the closing tag. By using HTML tags web browsers can differentiate between HTML content and standard content.

<body> This is just an example of the body tag </body>

Note, Open tags <>are from less than and greater than a symbol. And the close tag </>is a forward-slash between the less than and greater than symbols /.

The close tag contains the same text as the open tag, but with an additional forward-slash (/) character. You can interpret it as the “end” or “close” character.

Each HTML file contains the required valid (valid) tag so that the web browser can understand it, and display it correctly. But there are some tags that do not have a closing tag, they are also called empty tags.
