HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is the main markup language for creating web pages and other information to be displayed in a web browser. It was invented by Tim Berners-Lee while at CERN to enable researchers to share their findings. The latest version for HTML is HTML5, which supports many new features.

HTML elements form the building blocks of all websites. HTML allows images and objects to be embedded and can be used to create interactive forms. It provides a means to create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other items. It can embed scripts written in languages such as JavaScript which affect the behavior of HTML web pages. All the webpages that are written in different programming languages(PHP, JSP, VF etc.) gets rendered as HTML on the browser.
