Definition and Usage
The <html> tag tells the browser that this is an HTML document.
The html element is the outermost element in HTML and XHTML documents. The

The <html> tag is supported in all major browsers.

Tips and Notes
Note: Even though the html element is the root element, it does not
contain the doctype element. The doctype element must be placed before the html
