HTML <head> Tag

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The <head> tag in HTML works as a container for the following elements − <title>, <style>, <base>, <link>, <meta>, <script>, <noscript>.

In HTML5, you can even work with an HTML document without including the <head> element.

<title> inside <head>

Let us now see an example to implement the <head> tag and add <title> −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Document Title</title>
</head>
<body>
   <h2>Demo Heading</h2>
   <p>This is demo text.</p>
   <p>This is demo text.</p>
   <p>This is demo text.</p>
   <p>This is demo text.</p>
</body>
</html>

This will produce the following output displaying the title of the document we added under the <head> element −

<base> inside <head>

The base tag in HTML is used to set the base URL for an HTML document. The <head> works as a container for <base> element as well. For example, base URL as https −//example.com/tutorials for all the relative URLs like /html, /java, /jquery etc., which are eventually −

https −//example.com/tutorials/html
https −//example.com/tutorials/java
https −//example.com/tutorials/jquery

Note − The <base> tag has no end tag i.e. no need to end it with </base>

Following are the attributes −

  • href − It sets the base URL for all relative URLs in the page
  • target − Default target for all hyperlinks and forms. The values can be _blank, _parent, _self, _top and framename .

Let us now see an example to implement the <base> element −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<base href="https −//www.example.com/tutorials/">
</head>
<body>
   <h2>Tutotials List</h2>
   <p><a href="java.html">Java Tutorial</a></p><p>(This will act as https −//www.example.com/tutorials/java.html)</p>
   <p><a href="jquery.html">jQuery Tutorial</a></p><p>(This will act as https −//www.example.com/tutorials/jquery.html)</p>
   <p><a href="blockchain.html">Blockchain Tutorial</a></p><p>(This will act as https −//www.example.com/tutorials/blockchain.html)</p>
   <p><a href="python.html">Python Tutorial</a></p><p>(This will act as https −//www.example.com/tutorials/python.html)</p>
</body>
</html>
