We can trace HTML's history all the way back to 1991 when…Tim Berners-Lee published a document called HTML tags.…Which described a set of tags that could be used to mark up contents of…online documents.…Now this eventually led to the publication of the first HTML specification which was…HTML 2.0.,…in 1995, HTML 3.2 followed in 1997.…Only to be replaced by HTML 4.0 later in the same year.…
