You always have to take care of start tag and end tag. The start and end HTML tags are the most important… Don’t forget to write those tags on HTML documents.

After that, you have to go for <head></head> where you can write code to decorate your HTML documents. Inside that you can even write <title></title> it’s the title of your HTML documents.

Finally, it’s the <body></body> here you can write the visible content, means which you want to show on your web page.

<!doctype html>
                    <h1> Hello World!</h1>
                    <p> Hope all are fine</p>
