HTML Tag Reference

About This Book

This book provides a complete reference to all the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) tags and attributes supported in Netscape Navigator 4.0 and earlier. This book was posted on 11/19/97. This tag reference replaces the previous HTML Reference Guide.

In this tag reference, the HTML tags are grouped by functionality.

For a list of just the categories, see List of Categories.

For a list of categories and tags, see List of Categories and HTML Tags.

For an alphabetical list of tags, see Alphabetical List of Tags.

Each tag listing includes a description of the attributes for that tag. However, some attributes apply to almost all tags inside the body of the document. These are known as universal attributes, and are described once in Universal Attributes. In the syntax section of each tag, these attributes are linked to the section where they are described. For example:

<ADDRESS
  
CLASS="styleClass"
  ID="namedPlaceOrStyle"
  LANG="ISO"
  STYLE="style"
>...
</ADDRESS>

All tags and attributes were introduced in Netscape Navigator 1.0, except where marked otherwise. For example, the LAYER tag was introduced in Navigator 4.0, which is indicated as follows:

The LAYER tag defines preciselypositioned, overlapping blocks of transparent or opaque content in a web page using the <LAYER> tag. Navigator 4.0
