HTML is not a 'language'; it's simply a markup that helps text to be displayed in specific way.

There's a lot that goes behind generation of web page. For example, PHP runs on server and outputs HTML so that it can be rendered in a browser. Also there's JavaScript, CSS that help in adding more functionality & looks to the web pages.

Building webpages must be interesting,it must be a good feeling when you instigate and see the changes.

definitely it is, just try out the applet based tutorials in W3Schools Online Web Tutorials and u can see and understand the changes and roles that html, css, javascript and others play in developing a full fledged website 😀

rightly said that HTML is not a lsngusge rather its a markup which helps in presenting something in a good manner.there is much more which helps in designing the web pages like PHP is needed and you must learn javascript,css along with the html to develope a weeb page
