The hypertext markup language (HTML) is the standard language for
the World Wide Web. A markup language is a way of describing, using
instructions embedded within a document, what the document text
means, or what it is supposed to look like. Simply, it is a collection
of tags used to mark blocks of text and assign them special meaning.
An HTML tag is set off by angle brackets <tag> and the code
is placed within these brackets. Most tags come in pairs, with the
tags placed before (and often after) the affected text.
The sections on HTML in the SuperComputing Summer Institute are
centralized in five basic areas; planning, research, development,
refinement and implementation. These five areas work as organizational
frameworks for instruction and learning, progress and presentation.
This approach allows for a deeper search into a topic and frames
the use of computer technology tools with a specific purpose. The
goal is to imbed the use of the educational technology within a
task of developing a Web Site using HTML and the tools of the Internet.
