What Language(s) Must Be Used To Display a Bare-minimum Web Page?

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is the standard markup language that must be used to display a bare-minimum web page.

Whist browsing the Internet, you will find every web page we visit written with HTML (Hypertext Markup Language).

As we are aware, humans communicate through language. Similarly, a computer uses markup language (i.e., HTML and XML) by utilizing tags to define elements within a document.

HTML is the most popular standard markup language (a.k.a code) for documents, creating webpages.

What’s the difference between Html And CSS

As the name suggests, CSS or Cascade Styling Sheets is used to style the website like background color, the layout of the website, visual effects, etc.

Whereas HTML creates or structures the web page’s actual content like written texts, sidebars, and page contents.

It is not a perfect example by any means; I find it easy to see HTML as the architect (building structure of the house) and CSS as an interior designer (making a home beautiful)

Which is better, HTML, or CSS?

You may find HTML easy to learn and to code. HTML is lightweight and supports multiple languages; however, it can’t produce dynamic output because it is a static language. It can be quite lengthy the whole technical process (unless you enjoy it) and has limited security features.

However, HTML is correctly interpreted by the browsers and has extensive community support.

Many people may find CSS a little challenging to use because it can be quite nuanced to grasp the meaning. The more you learn CSS, the more complicated the codes are, and it can get pretty messy.

CSS has a faster loading speed, which means speedier website speed. It is easy to maintain and supports offline browsing. 

It does not have any built-in security because it is an open text-based system.

Like HTML, CSS has considerable community support.

CSS and HTML are both not a programming language like C++ or Python.

Indulge with me here; you could view HTML and CSS as husband and a wife. They work together as a team. HTML creates a structure whist CSS (describes) controls and formats that structure. 🙂

To recap, HTML creates a structure like paragraphs, footers, sidebars, headings, images, etc… In contrast, CSS formats that structure, i.e., make the headline bold, add padding around an image, specifies colors, fonts, page layouts, etc.

Which CSS attribute would change an element’s font color to blue?

You can choose various variants to choose the color blue such as RGB color syntax, HSL syntax, hexadecimal syntax. You can use the color property Hex Code as #0000FF, which will change an element’s font color to blue.

Example below:

Choose your Selector (this is the class or id) { color: #0000FF }

selector { color: rgb(0, 0, 255) }


selector { color: blue }
