HTML simply stands for HyperText Markup Language, which means that it contains a large number of markup tags.
You might have some data that you want to fill your website with. Adding this data in proper way is taken care by HTML tags.
There are separate tags for different purpose or types of content. For example, nav contains navigation, H1 to H6 tags contain headers (with different priorities of weightage), div tags are used to generate final layout of a web page and p tags (or paragraph tags) are used to contain textual data along with related images, audios, and videos.
HTML is a langulage to develop web-pages for websites and all the websites of the world are finally rendered in the browser as plain html files only. The files could initially be present on server side as - '.php', '.asp', or '.jsp' format but finally they are converted as 'plain .html' files and then sent to the browser on the client (or user-side) computer.

From then on, the language has seen constant development and changes. Today, it has capability of making complex graphs and charts all by itself (using SVG, Canvas, WebGL).
