HTML Tag Groups
A Tag Group is a collection of tags that work together to create more complex UI features, such as, layouts, tables, and data-entry forms.
Tags Working Together
HTML tags often work together with other tags to create more complex UI features.
For example, creating a table requires at least 3 different tags: <table>, <tr>, and <td>.
Or, to create a page you'll need these tags: <html>, <head>, <meta>, <link>, and <body>.
We refer to these cooperating tags as Tag Groups.
Definition: A tag group is a collection of tags that together create a more complex UI construct.
In HTML, several tag groups can be identified:
- Page group - defines the page structure including meta data.
- Layout group - defines page layouts with headers, navbars, footers, etc.
- Table group - defines tables for tabular data displays.
- Form group - defines forms for data entry.
- Text group - defines formatted text documents.
- List group - defines ordered and unordered lists with data items.
- Media group - defines multimedia experiences with audio, video, etc.
- Code group - defines programming related sections, including source code.
Tip: If you're new to HTML it is helpful to refer to these Tag Groups and understand the larger
picture of building successful web pages.
