Lesson 1


Displaying text in the browser

Every web page and most apps are built using HTML. It's how we tell the browser what the content of the page is. Most web pages are made up of distinct types of content: headings, paragraphs of text, images, videos and forms. We can tell the browser where these are on a page using HTML elements. The first element we're going to look at is the paragraph element.
