Appendix A. HTML Tags and Elements

This appendix[12] contains the master list of HTML tags that appear in this book. It includes all the tags listed in the HTML 4.0 Specification (including the complete list of attributes for each tag), tags in current use that are not specifically mentioned in the 4.0 Spec, and all browser-specific tags and attributes.

Attributes Key

Many of the tags and elements in this appendix are followed by notes indicating their use or exclusive browser support. The following chart provides explanations for each of those notes.

—D

Deprecated in the HTML 4.0 Specification

—R

Attribute is required in the tag

—IE

Tag or attribute is supported by Microsoft Internet Explorer only

—NN

Tag or attribute is supported by Netscape Navigator only

—event

An event used by a scripting language

In the interest of saving space, this appendix adopts the convention established by the HTML 4.0 Specification of using special attribute group names. Each of these names, indicated in italic text in the charts, represents a collection of specific attributes or events, as described:

Core attributes indicates the collection of core HTML attributes:

id

class

assigns a classification name to the element

style

title

i18n stands for “internationalization”:

lang

specifies the language for the element by its 2-character language code
