Hey there!

You are incorrect sorry, HTML is not used to add interactivity to websites, that would be JavaScript. HTML is a markup language that is used to structure your webpage and the content that webpage will hold. It is the core language that basically creates a webpage. Without CSS, web pages would look pretty dull and boring.

To summarise:

  • HTML (HyperText Markup Language) structures the page.
  • CSS (Cascading Stylesheets) defines the presentation of the page (the appearance)
  • JavaScript adds interactivity to the page.

Thank you so much, @Jamie Reardon, I am pretty new to this course and just got confused between the interaction and structures, this answer is very understandable and is of great help.
