Technical Details HTML is written using lots of different tags, surrounded by angle brackets. All modern web browsers support the use of HTML4, but more recently the HTML5 has been developed to incorporate many new syntactical features. These include the <video>, <audio>, and <canvas> elements, as well as the integration of SVG content. HTML can also describe, to a certain degree, the appearance and semantics of a document, and is able to include other scripting languages, embeded scripting languages such as JavaScript which can affect the behavior of Web browsers and other HTML processors.
