Whats the point of <html> and <body>?

I decides to try something, I made a code that only had <!DOCTYPE html> and the text "Hello" and it succesfully output-ed. If we don't need them why include them. Edit: I only put those in the code once, so I may have missed something small/big that I didnt try

Maybe here will be successful but <html> is the root tag how to build your website without the root ,and <!DOCTYPE html> to support many things in HTML 5 ,and some browsers will not accept your website without them and <head> <body> . When you read more about them you will see importance for them.

Some browsers maybe more forgiving than others.

That is related with DOM.

html and body tags are both the main tags to build a webpage
