How To Close an HTML Element?

In XHTML syntax, every HTML element must be closed. There are two ways to close an HTML element:

  • Using a closing tag, which is the element name prefixed with "/" and enclosed in a pair of angle brackets: "<" and ">".
  • Closing the opening tag immediately by placing "/" before the ending bracket: ">".

Here are some good examples of closing XHTML elements:

  • <html>...</html>- Closing the "html" element with a closing tag.
  • <head>...</head> - Closing the "head" element with a closing tag.
  • <title/> - Closing the "title" element immediately with no content.
  • <body>...</body> - Closing the "body" element with a closing tag.
  • <p>...</p> - Closing the "p" element with a closing tag.
  • <script/> - Closing the "script" element immediately with no content.
