Essential HTML Cheat Sheet

HTML is the main markup language for creating web pages. There are some basic tags that are very simple to apply and can effect the overall look you are trying to achieve.

Here are some basic HTML tags to get you started:

HTML Headings <h1> to <h6> tags

There are six different heading tags that create different effects. They all work in the same way, replacing with the different numbers. h1 is the largest down to h6 which is the smallest font. Here is an example:

<h1>using this tag will create an H1 heading</h1>


There is a tag that you can use to start a new paragraph i.e. on a new line with a space above and another to create a line break i.e. a new line but with no space above. Here are examples of both:

<p>this tag will create a new paragraph</p>

<br>this tag will create a link break (no end tag required)

<ol>this tag will create an ordered list (numerical or alphabetical)</ol>
<li>item 1 on list</li>
<li>item 2 on list</li>
<li>item 3 on list</li>

<ul>this tag will create a an unordered list</ul>
<li>item 1 on list</li>
<li>item 2 on list</li>
<li>item 3 on list</li>


You may wish to link a particular section of text to another webpage. Here is an example of how you would insert a hyperlink using HTML:
