So what is HTML anyway?

According to Whatis.com, HTML is HyperText Markup Language, a file format often used as the basis of web pages. 

HTML consists of tags surrounded by angle brackets. HTML tags can be used to define headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes, and interactive forms. It can also be used to embed Javascript, and CSS (cascading style sheets). – Sololearn

You’re probably asking yourself why this format is so important? Like many sites, Emaze utilizes HTML to protect the proper formatting of text, images and video so that your internet browser may display the content as it is intended to look. Without HTML, a browser wouldn’t understand how to display your content and all the elements included in the presentation. 

Since HTML displays all of the content in a presentation in the intended layout and format, it works as a great tool for displaying Emaze presentations, especially when there is limited or no internet access.
