HTML | <html> Tag

The <html> tag in HTML is used to define the root of HTML and XHTML documents. The <html> tag tells the browser that it is an HTML document. It is the second outer container for everything that appears in an HTML document followed by the <!DOCTYPE> tag. The <html> tag requires a starting and end tag.

Syntax:

<html> HTML Contents... </html>

Attribute Value: The <html> tag contains single attribute xmlns whose attribute value is http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml. It is used to define the namespace attributes.

Below examples illustrate the <html> element in HTML:

Example 1:



<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>html tag</title>
        <style>
            h1 {
                color: green;
            }
            body {
                text-align:center;
            }
        </style
    </head>
    <body>
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
        <h2><html> Tag</h2>
    </body>
</html>
