HTML 4 Tags

This page contains a full list of HTML tags from the HTML 4.01 specification. The tags are listed alphabetically.

Note that HTML5 has superseded HTML 4, so if you're looking for an up to date list of tags, see this list of HTML Tags or go specifically to the list of HTML5 Tags.

However, if you are looking specifically for HTML 4 tags, you've come to the right place. When you view the details of each HTML 4 element below, there's a link to the corresponding HTML5 version where applicable. If an element is obsolete in HTML5, this is stated at the top of the page.

Differences between HTML 4 and HTML 5

Many HTML elements changed with the introduction of HTML5. Many elements have a new meaning or purpose in HTML5. So, just because it is in both HTML 4 and HTML5, doesn't mean that the element works the same way.

Therefore it is always best to refer to the general list of HTML Tags or the list of HTML5 Tags if you need more up to date information.

HTML5 Tags

The information on this page is based on HTML version 4.01. Most modern browsers now support HTML5, which is the next version of HTML after HTML 4.01.
