Hypertext Mark-up Language
Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML) is the main mark-up language for creating web pages and other information that can be displayed in a web browser.
HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets within the web page content. HTML tags most commonly come in pairs although some tags, known as empty elements, are unpaired. The first tag in a pair is the start tag; the second tag is the end tag. In between these tags web designers can add text, tags, comments and other types of text-based content. The purpose of a web browser is to read HTML documents and create them into visible or audible web pages. The browser does not display the HTML tags, but uses the tags to understand the content of the page.(Princeton 2013)
The developers chose HTML since it is the most basic language that web pages are written in. With the use of CSS it is easy to change font style, color, and the type of text. It is also create a simple table to organize images or create a chart on the site. PHP
Stands for "Hypertext Pre-processor." (It is a recursive acronym, if you can understand what that means.) PHP is an HTML-embedded Web scripting language. This means PHP code can be inserted into the HTML of a Web page. When a PHP page is accessed, the PHP code is read or "parsed" by the server the page resides on. The outputs from the PHP functions on the page are typically returned as HTML code, which can be read by the browser. Because the PHP code is transformed into HTML before the page is loaded, users cannot view the PHP code on a page. This make PHP pages secure enough to access databases and other secure information. A lot of the syntax of PHP is borrowed from other languages such as C, Java and Perl. However, PHP has a number of unique features and specific functions as well. The goal of the language is to allow Web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly and easily. PHP is also great for creating database-driven Web sites.
