HTML <time> Tag

To define the date and time in a 24-hour clock or a precise date in the Gregorian calendar, the HTML <time> tag is used. It thus encodes the value of date and time in a machine-readable format. Thus making it easy to mark or schedule a task and also to produce smarter search results. It was introduced in HTML5.


<time>Date and Time value</time>


<!DOCTYPE html>
<p><time>10:00</time> AM - Meeting at Conference Hall.</p>
<p><time datetime="2019-10-10 23:55">Tom's Birthday</time>.</p>


In the above example, we have defined date and time using the HTML <time> tag.
