   HTML tags normally come in pairs like  and 
   The first tag in a pair is the start tag, the second tag is the end tag

   HTML documents are also called web pages

The purpose of a web browser (like Internet Explorer or Firefox) is to read HTML documents and display them as web pages. The browser does not display the HTML tags, but uses the tags to interpret the content of the page: <html> <body>
