HTML vs CSS Differences
“HTML is a markup language for describing web documents (web pages).” – w3schools
In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee invented the Web with HTML as its publishing language. HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) was created to help programmers describe the content on a website like <this is a heading>, <this is a paragraph>. HTML uses tags to help you add paragraphs, headers, pictures, bullets and other pieces of structure. Just like you would write something on a word document, HTML helps you write something on a website. (Wiki, w3schools)
“CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed on screen, paper, or in other media.” – w3schools
CSS was first proposed by Hakom Lie and co-created by Bert Bos around 1996. Created to compliment HTML, CSS (CascadingStyle Sheets) is what makes a website look and feel amazing. Presentation and ease of use have been some of the qualities CSS has brought to web development. It is more involved with changing a websites style rather than its content. Kind of like changing the font size, font color and positioning on a word document. CSS is in charge of the way the content looks on a page and what else goes on it to compliment that content.
