Establishing a Document Structure - HTML 4

Although no two (X)HTML pages are alike — each employs a unique combination of content and elements to define the page — every properly constructed (X)HTML page needs the same basic document structure that includes

  • A statement that identifies the document as an (X)HTML document
  • A document header
  • A document body

Every time you create an (X)HTML document, start with these three elements; you can then fill in the rest of your content and markup to create an individual page.

Although a basic document structure is a requirement for every (X)HTML document, creating it over and over again can be a little monotonous. Most (X)HTML-editing tools automatically set up the basic document structure for you when you open a new document.
