HyperText Markup Language

   Abbreviated HTML. A standard document formatting language used to create Web pages and other hypertext documents. HTML is a subset of Standardized General Markup Language (SGML).
   HTML defines the appearance and placement on the page of elements such as fonts, graphics, text, links to other Web sites, and so on; it has nothing to do with the actual material presented. Hypertext documents often have the filename extension .htm or .html.
   The published HTML standards have been revised several times. HTML version 2 was the first version widely used on the World Wide Web and supported by the popular Web browsers of the day. Subsequent revisions to the standard have added new HTML elements such as tables, text flow around images, frames, applets, and style sheets.
   Future HTML revisions will be developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), at least in theory; the manufacturers of the most popular browsers have driven this process in the past by creating their own non-standard HTML elements.
   HTML has been vital in the development of the World Wide Web; however, the functions that it performs via the Web browser are becoming restrictive. In part, this has led to the development of other technologies, such as Java, Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML), and Extensible Markup Language (XML).
