    There are lots of html tags in that markup language, but the main tags are heading tags, body tags, title tags and meta tags. Here are some tags apart from them, <area>, <applet>, <a href> Link, <B>, <BR>, <blockquote>, <div>, <DL>, <font>, <img> <sub> and <sup>.

    The types of HTML tags is given above, but really you should look up a reference source like w3schools for information like this. Why? Because the the list alone is useless. You need to know what they do, and how to use them. That info is too much to give here. Also, HTML is less than half of what you need to know, because web sites are built with HTML and CSS, plus a range of other languages, like JavaScript and PHP.

    And, of course, you can always go to the ultimate source: https://www.w3.org/TR/html5/index.html#elements-1 (list of elements), or https://www.w3.org/TR/html5/ for everything you could possibly want to know.
