HTML Fundamental
Doggo's friends are very far in the space, and he can't visit and chat with all of them. Nevertheless, SpaceDoggo wants to share his travel memories with other doggos, so he decides to create a simple blog online. 

He has done some serious research on web development and how to put his creative work online in a professional manner. He knows there are tools to put his stories online, but he is a geek and wants to understand how things work from inside.

He found out that HTML and CSS are the most appropriate tools for his website. HTML, HyperText Markup Language, is a programming language used for creating websites and applications. It gives content structure and meaning.
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a presentation language

All HTML documents have a required structure that includes the following declaration with opening and closing elements:

  • <!DOCTYPE html>
  • <html>
  • <head>
  • <body>
What is HTML?

Amarkup language is not a programming language. It’s purpose is physical markup and not logic or decision making.
HTML works on sets of tags such as the heading tag <h1></h1>.
