I love what Storm said and I will add this. If you are just learning HTML and trying to memorize the tags you will be confused, very confused. To not be confused just start using them, any way you can with the simplest codes like writing different titles with all the h tags, drawing a line and so on... Just use the tags as you learn them. You will remember with no effort what each one of them does and your confusion will slowly disappear.

hi Ryan Sullivan (Suvan), the first thing you need to keep in mind is that html is essentially a "text" file. with "markup" (adding tags to your file/text) you tell the browser how to display your page on screen. although html5 is the latest standart and the browsers following those standarts, you might still see some minor differences between the browsers. but that's alright- nothing to worry about. the tags you can roughly group in two: structuring your page (div, nav, article, footer etc.) and styling your content/text (b, i, u tags etc.). and then there are some with which you can add tables, images and forms. one more important concept of html şs the "box model", where the elements are thought of ax boxes. you have your content which is the innermost part. right next/around your content is the "padding", which is essentially the space between your content and the "border". then comes your border itself. and finally the outermost part is the "margin", which is the space outside of your border and in between your elements. css is used for styling your html elements. be it their color/background color, font type/size, border thickness/style/color etc... once you know the box model and how your structure and content is placed on your page according to this model, things become much easier.

Think html as a female sandwich which has more sandwiches in it. Css as her makeup. And javascript as her brain. But aynways just throw all this thoughts and you got a scripting language called html5 which is heavly based on visual context and a honorable girl which will never cheat on you. Hope you marry with coding. And all your projects as your children. shshdhdhs
