Without any further ado, let’s jump straight in!
Understanding the difference
- HTML is an annotation language that describes a document and its data.
- CSS is a styling language that styles elements of an HTML document.
Are they all coding languages?
Yes! They are all coding languages because they are effective means of communicating with computers — that is, applications (such as the Browser) understand that when they read:
- HTML document, they are to present the page’s data as described (annotated) with the HTML markups.
- CSS document, they are to style selected HTML elements as stated (declared) with the CSS rulesets.
- CSS does not support all units — check out this “CSS Units” article to learn more about the supported units.
- Apart from the three languages discussed in this article, there are several other types of computing languages used to communicate with computers.
