There are lots of HTML tags available and more are being added. Do you need to know all of them to be able to work with HTML? No. As a matter of fact, we only need to know around 10-15 HTML tags 90% of the time. The rest can be referred to anytime if the need arises.
In this part of the series, we will start using Visual Studio Code so if you haven’t already done so, please download and install it. You can of course use any HTML editor of your choice but it is recommended to use Visual Studio Code if you follow along with this series.
