Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)

Popular Terms
Standard text based computer language for creating electronic (hypertext) documents for the web or offline uses. Being a 'markup' language, the value of HTML lies not so much in designing a visual structure (fonts, line spacing, layout, etc.) of an electronic document but in formulating its logical structure. The logical structure permits 'intelligent' information processing that is a prerequisite for the information's organization, indexation, communication, and discovery on the web. HTML supports inclusion of audio, video, and animation into an electronic document through helper software such as ActiveX, Java applets, Quick-Time.
See also Extensible Markup Language. Abbreviated HTML.
