The history of HTML is so strange and interesting.

It’s a standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications.

It forms a triad of cornerstone technologies for the WWW (World Wide Web).

This language was developed by physicist Tim Berners-Lee in 1991.

The idea behind HTML was a modest one.

When Tim was putting together his first elementary browsing and authoring system for the Web.

He created a quick little hypertext language that would serve his purposes.

The first ever version of HTML was HTML 1.0 but the first standard version was HTML 2.0, which was published in 1995.

In this version, a few features were available like file upload, tables and so on.
