What is web design and how is it different from web development?
One of the best analogies I've seen and really like, that is not my own, equates web design and web development to that of an architect and a builder. The web designer is going to be the person(s) who layout the design, the graphics, the pictures, and make it look and feel like the specifications provided. The builder or the web developer will come in and utilize the web designers "blue print" to create and build the website from their specifications. ,

What is HTML?
Great question! HTML stands for Hyper-text Markup Language. HTML is a language, similar to how English is a language, except it's a language for the different websites you visit to communicate. Think of it like a person translating Spanish to English, or vice versa. When you go to visit a website you are seeing that browsers interpretation of HTML that the page has encoded within it . Your web browser or mobile device is going to deliver it's interpretation of the HTML code that someone has put into the website and display that for you on your screen. At the most basic level, HTML has pre-defined tags that you use to establish the structure of your web page. It has an open and close tag. For example, the tag <html> </html> will tell the web browser that we are using HTML and that anything in between that first tag (open) and the second tag (close) is going to need to be processed and presented as HTML.
