What is HTML and CSS
HTML is H
anguage and CSS is C
heet. In simple word, by HTML you can put your data (your text, image, video etc.) in the proper format so that browser can download and display it whereas by CSS you can tell the browser how to enhance the look of your data (your text, image, video etc.). So from this point, one thing should be clear that without CSS is optional. If you don’t provide CSS the browser will display it in its default look.
Let’s look an example.
<h1>This is post heading</h1>
(header 1)is an HTML tag and This is post heading
is your data. It is a basically instructing the browser that display This is post heading
on the browser in big header mode. The style/look will be the default so the text color will be in black.
