HTML - HyperText Markup Language

While technically not a programming language HTML, and its off-shoots(XML, SHTML, DHTML), is very important and very useful. One of the points of HTML is to provide an interface for displaying information across the Internet no matter what type of computer or browser is accessing the information.

HTML is built on a series of tags which suggest how data should be displayed. Each computer or browser will attempt to display the data in the best possible way instead of simply erroring out. For example, if you want to read an MSWord document, you need MSWord or a program which can convert the file. HTML documents can be opened almost anywhere.
