HTML 5 Programming and Web development/HTML 5 Attributes
HTML 5 attributes are created using a name-value pair and are usually put alongside the tag name.
Name-value pairs[edit | edit source]
Name-value pairs are represented by a set of text strings in which
name="value" and are usually separated by commas,semicolons,space or newline character.
Writing HTML 5 Atrributes[edit | edit source]
HTML 5 attributes are written inside the element's tag and separated by spaces. For example:
<input type="text" value="hello Web"/>
In this code the attributes are type and value and their values are "text" and "hello Web" respectively.
What do Attributes do[edit | edit source]
Attributes give extra information about an element for example in the input element the attribute type gives the type of input, so if he had
type="button" we would get a button instead of a textbox.Attributes are very important to HTML and without them Web development would be probably much harder.
