What Is An Open Tag?


An "open tag" refers to the starting part of a pair of tags used to define elements or code structures especially in markup languages like HTML and XML.

For instance, in HTML, tags are used to define elements on a web page. An open tag consists of the tag name enclosed within angle brackets < >. It marks the beginning of an element, and it may contain attributes that provide additional information about the element.


Here's an example in HTML:

01: <p>Sample text.</p>

In this HTML snippet:

  • is the open tag, indicating the start of a paragraph element.

  • is the corresponding closing tag, marking the end of the paragraph element.

The content between the open and closing tags defines what will be displayed or the purpose of that particular element.
