Learn just 20 tags to get started in HTML

You may wonder why you should learn HTML.  Fact is you can't seriously work as a web designer without it.  There are about 80 HTML tags in total but I think that 20 make a great starting point.  Many projects will be possible with these 20 and others tags can be picked up as and when needed.

Document Description

  1. <html>
  2. <head>
  3. <title>
  4. <body>

Structure

  1. <p>
  2. <br>
  3. <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6>
  4. <ul>
  5. <li>
  6. <table>
  7. <tr>
  8. <td>
  9. <div>

Adding Content

  1. <a>
  2. <img>
  3. <strong>
  4. <em>
  5. <span>

Technie tags for later

  1. <style>
  2. <link>

Okay so I grouped <h1> through <h6> to keep the list under 20 but they can't be hard to learn once you understand how one works.
