HTML, also known as Hypertext Markup Language, is a specific markup language. It is a combination of markup symbols and codes, used to create a web page on World Wide Web. So, every web page is written in HTML code.

HTML determines how will web browser display text and images on a web page. Web browsers use HTML tags, but they do not display them. Every HTML tag contains an opening tag (name of attributes) and a close tag (a forward slash).
