Computer Term

1. Tag

Tags are the basic formatting tool used in HTML (hypertext markup language) and other markup languages, such as XML. For example, to create a table on a Web page, the <table> tag is used. The data that should be inside the table follows the <table> tag, and the table is closed with a </table> tag.

If you want something to show up in bold on a Web page, you would use the bold tag. For example, the line:

This site is the <b>best website</b> ever!

would show up as: This site is the best website ever!

Since there is often a need to format content within more general tags, the tags can be "nested," meaning one tag can enclose one or more other tags. For example:

<font="Times">This is the Times font, and <i>this is in italics</i>. Pretty exciting, huh?</font>

would should up as: This is the Times font, and this is in italics. Pretty exciting, huh?

Tags are a fundemental part of HTML and they are pretty simple to understand. If you want to build a Web site of your own, you can either create it from scratch (using a text editor and typing your own tags) or you can use a layout program such as Adobe GoLive or Macromedia Dreamweaver, which will generate the tags for you. Best of all, tags used in markup languages don't itch or chafe your neck.
