The brief history of HTML
Sir Timothy john Tim Berners Lee is the fathers of HTML as well as Hypertext markup and World Wide Web. He was a British computer scientist who worked in a physics laboratory Surn in Geneva of Switzerland. In March of 1989 he proposed to use Hypertext Link method for spreading scientific research information in the whole world rapidly which can connect one document with another’s document and thus a huge network can be made of each others connected information. From this thinking he and his friend Robert Seily made such an experimental Hypertext Link and have opened it in the world to examine how it works.
Many versions has been released from the beginning to now of HTML. But many opportunities have been connected in every version from the old version.
Html history: HTML 1.0
HTML 1.0 is the first version of HTML. When this version was released at that time so many people were not connected with website creation in the world and internet was not popular. Some people who were connected with web development that could not able to create website according to their demand with this original HTML 1.0. Because it was made only 22 tag and it had many limitations. It was the history of beginning of HTML language.
Html history: HTML 2.0
HTML 2.0 was released in 1995. All of those of HTML 1.0 were included in HTML 2.0. Which means HTML 1.0 version is not different from HTML 2.0 version without some new features or opportunities.
Html history: HTML 3.0
In those days web page become popular more and more and many people started to learn HTML. The web masters have understood the limitation by designing the web and they became thirsty to get more ability, more powerful tag. Indeed they wanted beautify the face of website by changing it.
At that time Netscape Navigators browsers was very popular of Netscape Company. To say they were a clear leader of browser market. To appease the people who wanted more and more they create a new set of proprietary tags and attributes into their Netscape Navigator browser. This new abilities were called Netscape extension tags that would work only in Netscape Navigator. As a result other Browser company tried to equal of their Extension tag to survive with Netscape browsers but were not able to get their browsers to display thing the same way.
This means if you design web page by Netscape extension tag then your web page will show nice in Netscape browser. But it will look bad in other Browser. web developer were confused and they are wanted a new more advance version of HTML. For this reason a html working group led by a man named Dave Raggett introduced a new html Draft, HTML 3.0. This draft included many new and improved abilities for html and promised far more powerful opportunities for web master developers to create their web page. But unfortunately it is true; the web browsers were slow in implementing these new abilities and opportunities, only adding in a few and leaving out the rest. Web browsers would have probably performed faster implementations of new features if not for the large size of the overhaul and so the html 3.0 space was abandoned.
Thankfully the people in charge understand this and so future improvement were always designed to be modular. This meant they could be added in stages as opposed to in one large chunk which would be easier for web browsers to adapt to the new changes of html.
Html history: HTML 3.2
After the demise of the HTML 3.0 draft the creation of new elements and attributes had been proliferating in several brewers. For this reason a standard for html was needed. In 1994 the organization call the w3c (World Wide Web consortium) decided to form an Editorial Review Board to consider the many extensions being made specification. They were creating a comprehensive set of HTML specifications that compacted this new word into the official body of the language.
At the starting of May 1996 at the world wide conference held in Paris, France and the review board announced HTML 3.2 which code named Wilbur. It was an addition of HTML 2.0 features and a set of features from HTML 3.0 that survived the experimental deployment period. This was a huge change to the existing standard, leaving many of the big steps forward for later versions. Most of the extensions tags created by Netscape for their Netscape Navigator browser as well as Microsoft for their internet Explorer browser did not make it into these new standards. At last January 14, 1997 HTML 3.2 became the official standard and today practically all browsers support it fully.
Html history: HTML 4.0
Many changes has been made in this version from HTML 3.2. Only HTML 3.2 contained several tags and attributes for styling things like text and links. While seemingly a good idea, it turned out to be very different. The web page developers wasted many time to change color and font of different page by manually coding. But to design the web thus by html was not the rules. HTML was designed to specify the logical organization of a document. With HTML 4.0 this concept became realized, as styling tags and attributes were deprecated. Actually styling page is not any part of HTML. But it is a helpful language of HTML.
Html history: HTML5
HTML5 is the update that defines to HTML from HTML4 (XHTML follows a different version numbering scheme). HTML5 also simplifies the doctype declaration too.
