Title

HTML document structure requires every document to have a title element. The title occurs in the HEAD of a document but is not actually displayed in the document. It is listed in hotlists (bookmark or favorite files) and histories, and is used as a label for the window displaying the document. The title should be descriptive enough to identify your document out of context but concise enough to remain meaningful for browsers that truncate long titles.

    <title>Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage: Society Economy</title>

Meta

Use the meta element to assist Web search tools to identify the content of the document. The meta element must be place in the document HEAD.

    <meta name="keywords" content=" Newfoundland, Labrador, Bonavista, John Cabot, Matthew, discovery, 1497" >

Comment

It is a good idea to get into the practice of commenting your HTML code. A comment is text inserted in the HTML code but not displayed on the Web page. The use of comments throughout will help make file editing and maintenance much easier and will assist others in understanding how the page is constructed.

For example:

    <!--header ends here-- >
    <!--column for body text begins here-- >
    <!--footer graphic-- >
