HTML: Head tags

I previously mentioned you can add information to the head tag of an HTML document.

The head tag contains special tags that define the document properties.

It’s always written before the body tag, right after the opening html tag:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    ...
  </head>
  ...
</html>

We never use attributes on this tag.

And we don’t write content in it.

It’s just a container for other tags.

Inside it we can have a wide variety of tags, depending on what you need to do:

  • title
  • script
  • link
  • style
  • meta

We’ll see them in details in the “More HTML” section.
