HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the formatting language for a hypertext or hypermedia document, viewable with a web browser such as Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, or Lynx. HTML documents are plain ASCII text and can be created with a text editor. They contain formatting codes and links to other documents and media (including images and sounds).
