HTML <html> Tag
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2021

The <html> tag in HTML is used to define the root of HTML and XHTML documents. The <html> tag tells the browser that it is an HTML document. It is the second outer container for everything that appears in an HTML document followed by the <!DOCTYPE> tag. The <html> tag requires a starting and end tag.
Syntax: 
 

<html> HTML Contents... </html>

Attribute Value: The <html> tag contains single attribute xmlns whose attribute value is http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml. It is used to define the namespace attributes.
Below examples illustrate the <html> element in HTML:
Example 1:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- html tag starts here -->
<html>
 
        <body>
             
            <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
            <h2><html> Tag</h2>
             
        </body>
