Introduction to HTML
The Body

One of the key HTML elements we use to build a webpage is the body element. Only content inside the opening and closing body tags can be displayed to the screen. Here’s what opening and closing body tags look like:

<body> </body>

Once the file has a body, many different types of content – including text, images, and buttons – can be added to the body.

<body> <p>What's up, doc?</p> </body>



Add a body to your web page using the <body> element.


Add the following code between your opening and closing body tags:

<p>"Life is very short and what we have to do must be done in the now." - Audre Lorde</p>
