HTML <html> Tag

All other HTML components are contained within the html tag. This tag is sometimes referred to as the <html> element.

Except for the <!DOCTYPE> tag, the <html> tag serves as a container for all other HTML components.

To define the language of the Web page, always use the lang attribute inside the <html> tag. This is intended to help search engines and browsers.
