<title> : title of the page to appear on the top bar of your browser.
<hr/> : horizontal rule. to draw line.
tags related to list

"../" points to the folder one level up from the position of the file from which the link is made.
you can also point two or more folders up by writing "../../".
Internal links within the page using id
<h1 id=heading1> this is heading 1 </h1>
<a href = "#heading1"> link to heading 1 </a>
link to an e-mail address
<a href= "mailto: email@example.com"> send mail to this id </a>
title for a link
<img src="here you will right the source of the image" alt="xyz "/>
also one can use image as a link too
<a href= "http://www.gusani.com/"><img src="c:/logo.png"> </a>

<section>: used as section of an article.
<header>: for ex. title of page.
<footer>:for ex. copyright

this makes sure your content is available no matter what device is used to browse the website.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
