HI Tifara, like John posted the basic structure of a web page including the <!DOCTYPE>

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Your Page Title</title>
  </head>

  <body>
    Your content goes here!
  </body>
</html>
  • <!doctype html> - This piece of code let's the browser know that asking it to display an HTML document.
  • <html> - All of your code must be between the html opening and closing tags.
  • <head> - Holds all the important behind-the-scenes information about your web page, like the title of your web page, and a links to a CSS stylesheets.
  • <meta> - This meta tag basically specifies which character set a website is written with.
  • <title> - Stuff between title tags doesn't appear on the web page, but you'll see it in search engine results and browser tabs.
  • <body> - Everything that displays in the browser - header, navigation, images, content - goes between the body tags.
