HTML Tutorial

Lesson 10
Getting Ready For Publication

While not required for your HTML to display in a browser, you will probably want to include a header section before publishing your page on the web. To do this, you will include a <head> tag and a </head> tag between the <html> tag and the <body> tag.

Between the <head> tag and the </head> tag you will want to include a title. You do this by using a <title> tag and a </title> tag. The text between these tags will show up in the title bar of the browser. For instance, the header section for this page includes:
<title>HTML Tutorial - Lesson 10</title>

You may also include <meta> tags in your header. <meta> tags take the form <meta name=description content="..."> and <meta name=keywords content="...">. The browser will not show the contents of these tags, but the search engines read them to determine the content and keywords of your page.
