HTML Head

The head element in HTML defines information about the HTML document. This may be general information about styles, title & meta information.

The head element essentially contains elements that should not be displayed by the browser. There are just a few tags that according to the HTML standard are considered legal to be included inside the head section. These include: <title>, <meta>, <base>, <style>, <link>, and <script>.
Example:

<head>

<title> This is the Title </title>

</head>


One thing to remember here is that, although the elements included inside the head element are not displayed by the browser, few elements like <h1> or <p> when defined inside the head element are displayed by the browser.

HTML Tip 1

Use only hexadecimal #RGB values for colors. The behavior of named colors is browser-idiosyncratic and totally unpredictable.
 
 

HTML Tip 2

You can resize your images without a graphics program by changing the HEIGHT and WIDTH in your image tag.
