The HTML <body> tag may be referred to as a couple different things:

  • The Body Tag
  • The Body Element
  • The Body Section

Between the opening <body> tag and the closing </body> tag is where you place your marked up content. What this means is that you will encapsulate your text and images you want displayed on the webpage with HTML tags (the "markup"). You are also able to include inline CSS and JavaScript within the body section.
