What makes up a Web page

To be clear after you make a request to a webserver, the webserver will then send you the web page. At this point the web page is just text, however this text is computer code that has instructions on how to display the webpage in your browser.

The core element of a web page is one or more text files written in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Many web pages also make use of JavaScript code for dynamic behaviour and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) code for presentation semantics.

To put that simply

  • HTML is the structure or layout of the website.
  • CSS is style of the website
  • Javascript is the functionality of the website
