How does a website come to be? Take a look at Groupon's study of the three languages that determine the basic look of any website.
HTML: An acronym for “hyper-text-markup language,” HTML is the language responsible for the structure of pages on the web. HTML determines how and where a browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer displays its information on a webpage. HTML consists of descriptors, called tags, and elements, that give visual characteristics to text and images on a website. These characteristics include whether text appears bold, when to indicate that you've started a new paragraph, and where a table begins and ends.
CSS: On most websites, HTML works in tandem with CSS, short for “cascading style sheets.” Whereas HTML lays out the format of a webpage, CSS lays out its presentation, defining a standard style for things such as colors, fonts, and sizes. Built out of necessity when designers needed to create more in-depth visual elements than HTML could handle alone, CSS offers another big advantage: simply altering one element on a CSS page can instantly affect the change across the entire website.
