Attributes in HTML

Attributes are used to provide some additional information about the tag and HTML tag can contain one or more attributes. Attributes are like the properties of the tag which are used to provide the additional formatting on the content. Attributes comes with name="value" pair.

Examples of attributes are as follows:

Like <img> attributes are src, width, height etc. Here src is used to provide the source of the image. Height is used to set the height of the image. Width is used to set the width of  the image.

HTML code:

<html>
<head>
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <img src="Chrysanthemum.jpg" height="30%" width="30%"></img>
</body>
</html>

 

<font> tag also have the attributes : color, size etc.

<html>
<head>
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <font color="green" size="20">My name is Robert</font>
</body>
</html>

 

Output
