The HTML or Hypertext Markup Language, in English, is the language used for the pages Web or of Internet. In Spanish its translation would come to be Language of hypertextual Document Labelling. The labelling talks about to that archives HTML, besides text, contain a series of attributions or additional information about the text. Hypertext, term coined in 1965 by Ted Nelson, is information nonlinear, which in simple words means text with connections or links to other texts. Language HTML structures the information, that soon it is visualized using a navigator, like in Internet Explorer that comes with the operating system Windows.
The history of the HTML begins the 1993 formally, when his was published first version; this it was a rough draft in charge of the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). In fact who it invented the HTML was Tim Berners-Read, one of the parents of the Internet, but first formal version took place in 1993, refined with the aid of the IETF.
With time new reviewed and improved versions were arising from the HTML, and the rough draft of the first standard HTML, which was version 3.0, was proposed when the W3C was created (the world-wide partnership of the Web or in English Consortium World Wide Web, that is directed by Tim Berners-Read and has their power station in the MIT). That one happened in March of the year of 1995. By means of this, they were managed to introduce varied and new capacities. Between that we can mention, the one to create tables, to cause that the text flowed around the figures, like also showing complex mathematical elements.
Although it was designed to be compatible with HTML, was too complex to be implemented with the technology of the time. For when the rough draft of the standard expired in September of 1995, Web giveave due to the deficiency of supports of the manufacturers of navigators.
Later, design a new version, which was the 3,1, but this almost did not see its entrance the world-wide market and the 3,2, that left the characteristics of the 3,0, adopted diverse elements that initially were developed by the navigators of the Web, like Netscape and Mosaic.
At present, they are not going to leave new versions the HTML. Clear that the inheritance of the same, will not be without that gathers, since this stays in the XHTML, which has its base in the strictest rules of language XML. The XHTML is considered by many like the successor, but in fact it is a different line.
At present, the format of the HTML, is one of most popular, as far as the construction of pages Web. This must to a great extent to the support on the part of the existing navigators, as they are Netscape, Firefox, Microsoft Explorer, among others. On the other hand, this language is used mainly to generate pages static, which is simpler for those who are beginning to publish information in the Internet. For some applications more outposts can be used languages like the PHP, that allows the creation of pages in dynamic form; for example, information can be obtained from a data base, for soon at the same moment generating a page that will be the one that side the user.
But it is not necessary to complicate to us as much, when in fact to create documents HTML, is an extremely simple task. Since any basic text editor, serves for this task. He is thus, like the Block de Notas de Windows, or any text editor, where it is possible to be written without a defined format, serves to be able to write or to create format HTML
Also, the well-known software Dreamweaver (which widely is used in the world of the design and the development of pages Web), serves to publish HTML codes. Of equal way, to create pages of Internet, it can be used the software of Microsoft Frontpage, text editing system, that uses as it bases, the same principles of the text editors initially mentioned.
The great advantage of all these software, is that it is not necessary to learn HTML; the user creates the page Web as he would create a document in Microsoft Word, for example. Soon the same program fixes them to translate this to code HTML. The results are optimal for that wish to publish of occasional way in the Internet, or to create personal pages. Those that is dedicated to publish of professional way, prefer in many cases of publishing the HTML by themselves, to obtain “a cleaner” code, which stops the great majority is unnecessary.
Returning to the code or language HTML in himself, this it uses labels to structure the text. Also, the labels are used to include photographies and the other elements that are going to appear in a page Web. The labels like so, can be visualized or be perceived, since these are surrounded by the signs “<>”. This is transparent for the user who sails in Internet, and to give account to us of this, we can from the Internet You explore to pass mouse over “Seeing” and soon click on “source code”. We will be surprised when observing the amount of labels used in a document anyone with format HTML.
