Html tag in HTML

HTML <html> Tag

The <html> tag is also called a root element because it is used as a container for all other HTML elements except the <!Doctype> element. The root of an HTML document is represented by the <html> tag thus informing the browser that this document is an HTML document. The <html> tag is placed after the <!Doctype> declaration and is closed at the very end of the HTML document.




<!DOCTYPE html>
