In our last lesson, we've covered this front matter at the top of the document. Let's look at the document itself. The HTML element, which has it's begin tag here and its end tag down here at the bottom, this contains the entire document. It's a container. You remember a container is any HTML tag that has content in between the begin tag and the end tag. So the HTML tag is a container, and it contains the entire document. The document itself is in two parts. There's the head, which has the title in it and other meta-information about the document.
