What is HTML tag?

An HTML tag is commonly defined as a set of characters constituting a formatted command for a Web page. At the core of HTML, tags provide the directions or recipes for the visual content that one sees on the Web.

HTML tags include tags for references, tags for tables, tags for headlines or titles, etc. Furthermore, An HTML tag consists of the tag name in angular brackets and may come in pairs, which makes up the beginning and ending tag that frames a particular piece of code, text, or other tags. Precisely, the beginning tag consists of the name, optionally followed by one or more attributes, whereas the ending tag consists of the same name preceded by a forward-slash (“/”).
