  As we looked at in the last section, HTML is a language for displaying documents (or web-pages) in browsers, either online (on the internet) or offline (for example the sample page you will produce in the next section). HTML allows you to display and format text (for example, different size and colours of text), and to insert images and forms into a page. It does not (on its own) allow interaction with the user (such as making an image change when the mouse is 'rolled over' it).
HTML was originally introduced as a language to display documents which required minimal markup, like research documents, and so often feels outdated when attempting to produce a modern web-page or site. This is where languages such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and Javascript come in, which deal with the display and interaction of the site, respectively.
