Html Elements

Hello! Morning guys,this morning am gonna be talking about HTML elements. In the last two tutorials we had, i talked about HTML tags, in this tutorial you gonna find out the actual difference between HTML tag and HTML element.

A HTML element is defined by a starting tag. If the element contains other content, it ends with a closing tag,where the element name is proceded by a forward slash as shown below.

You can read: Html Basic Tags2

Start TagContentEnd Tag
<p>This is paragraph content.</p>
<h1>This is heading content.</h1>
<div>This is division content.</div>
<br />

So here <P> and </p> is a HTML element,also <h1> and </h1> is another HTML element.There are some HTML elements which dont need to be closed such as <br />, <hr /> and <img /> elements. These are known as void elements.

HTML documents consist of a tree of these elements and they and specify how HTML documents should be built, and what kind of content should be placed in what section of the document.

Now am gonna give a brief  difference between a HTML element and a HTML tag below

HTML Element VS HTML Tag
A HTML element is defined by a starting tag.If the element contains other content,it then ends with a closing tag eg <h1> is the starting tag of the heading 1 and </h1> is the closing tag of the same heading 1 but <h1>This is the heading 1</h1>  is a heading1 element.
