The HTML head Element

The head element is a container for all the head elements. Elements inside <head> can include scripts, instruct the browser where to find style sheets, provide meta information, and more.

The Below tags can be added to the head section: <title>, <base>, <link>, <meta>, <script>, and <style>.

The HTML title Element

The <title> tag defines the title of the document.

The title element is required in all HTML/XHTML documents.

The title element:

  • defines a title in the browser toolbar
  • provides a title for the page when it is added to favorites
  • displays a title for the page in search-engine results

A simplified HTML document:

<html>
<head>
<title>Title of the document</title>
</head>
<body>
Enter your content
</body>

</html>

The HTML base Element

The <base> tag specifies a default address or a default target for all links on a page:

<head>
<base href="http://www.qctutorials.com/images/" />
<base target="_blank" />
</head>

The HTML link Element

The <link> tag defines the relationship between a document and an external resource.

The <link> tag is most used to link to style sheets:

<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mystyle.css" />
</head>

The HTML style Element

The <style> tag is used to define style information for an HTML document.

Inside the style element you specify how HTML elements should render in a browser:

<head>
<style type="text/css">
body {background-color:yellow}
p {color:blue}
</style>
</head>

The HTML meta Element

The <meta> tag provides metadata about the HTML document.

The meta element will be explained in the next chapter.

The HTML script Element
