Tags Working Together

HTML tags often work together with other tags to create more complex UI features.

For example, creating a table requires at least 3 different tags: <table>, <tr>, and <td>.

Or, to create a page you'll need these tags: <html>, <head>, <meta>, <link>, and <body>.

We refer to these cooperating tags as Tag Groups.

Definition: A tag group is a collection of tags that together create a more complex UI construct.


Tag Groups

In HTML, several tag groups can be identified:

  • Page group - defines the page structure including meta data.
  • Layout group - defines page layouts with headers, navbars, footers, etc.
  • Table group - defines tables for tabular data displays.
  • Form group - defines forms for data entry.
  • Text group - defines formatted text documents.
  • List group - defines ordered and unordered lists with data items.
  • Media group - defines multimedia experiences with audio, video, etc.
  • Code group - defines programming related sections, including source code.

Tip: If you're new to HTML it is helpful to refer to these Tag Groups and understand the larger picture of building successful web pages.
