The Language Used to Write Web Pagesby Matthew Ruane
Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau (both from a company named CERN) collaborated on a joint proposal in 1990. This proposal, the World Wide Web (W3), was accepted by CERN. Thus, HTML was inspired.
Every Web page on the Internet has a base coded in a version of HTML. Standing for Hypertext Markup Language, it is the most predominant language used for formatting Web pages aside from CSS.
