An HTML tag is written between < and > brackets and acts as a container for different types of content. Each tag has its own specific meaning, and the same applies to the content within it. A web browser reads an HTML document from top to bottom and left to right. Keywords to define the formatting of a web browser are called HTML tags. They display the content and distinguish it as HTML content and not any simple content. There are mainly three main parts in any HTML tag. These are; an opening tag, content, and a closing tag. However, some HTML tags are unclosed tags.
