HTML <html> tag

The <html> tag represents root of an HTML document hence also called as root element. It is a container of all elements (except <!Doctype> ) such as <body>, <head> and each element which appears in an HTML document. It tells the browser that the document is an HTML document.

Before the <html> tag we can only use <!Doctype> declaration which gives information about the HTML version to the browser.
