Function: html-mode

Major mode based on SGML mode for editing HTML documents.
This allows inserting skeleton constructs used in hypertext documents with
completion. See below for an introduction to HTML. Use
C-c C-v to see how this comes out. See also `sgml-mode' on
which this is based.

Do C-h v html- SPC and C-h v sgml- SPC to see available variables.

To write fairly well formatted pages you only need to know few things. Most
browsers have a function to read the source code of the page being seen, so
you can imitate various tricks. Here's a very short HTML primer which you
can also view with a browser to see what happens:

A Title Describing Contents should be on every page. Pages can

Very Major Headlines

Very Minor Headlines

Parts can be separated with horizontal rules.

Paragraphs only need an opening tag. Line breaks and multiple spaces are
ignored unless the text is

Text can be marked as
bold, italic or underlined using the normal M-o or
Edit/Text Properties/Face commands.

Pages can have named points and can link other points
to them with see also somename. In the same way href="URL">see also URL where URL is a filename relative to current
directory, or absolute as in `'.

Images in many formats can be inlined with .

If you mainly create your own documents, `sgml-specials' might be
interesting. But note that some HTML 2 browsers can't handle `''.
To work around that, do:
(eval-after-load "sgml-mode" '(aset sgml-char-names ?' nil))
