Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) documents are ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) or plain text documents that drive the World Wide Web (WWW). Within the document there are embedded commands (called tags) that are interpreted by the WEB browser. These embedded commands do all the fancy stuff of HTML like; (display pictures, make links to other sites, bold face, etc.). It is this language that formats the window to achieve different cosmetic effects.

- Commands must be enclosed within greater-than/less-than signs.
- Commands must have a beginning point.
- Most commands have a corresponding ending command.
