There are two kinds of tags. Those tags which require an ending, are called range tags. They are called "range tags" because they cover a range of text. Examples of range tags are <HTML>, <HEAD>, <BODY>, <TITLE>. Range tags require ending tags (</HTML>, </HEAD>, </BODY>, </TITLE>)
<HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>My Home Page</TITLE> </HEAD> <!-- Written by me --> <!-- Created: yesterday --> <!-- Last modified: today --> <BODY> This is where the text goes. </BODY> </HTML>
Point tags and range tags may also have attributes.
