<noscript> and <script>

The <noscript> element specifies an alternative content for users who have scripts deactivated in their browser or who are using a browser that does not support script.

Both the <head> and <body> elements can contain the <noscript> element. The <noscript> element could only include <link>, <style>, and <meta> elements when used inside the <head> element.

document.write("Hello World!")
<noscript>Your browser does not support JavaScript!</noscript>

A client-side script is embedded using the <script> element (JavaScript).

The src property of the <script> element either includes scripting statements or connects to an external script file.

Image manipulation, form validation, and dynamic content changes are all common uses for JavaScript.

The <link> tag establishes a connection between the current page and a remote resource.

To add favicon to your website or to link to external style sheets we use <link> tag.

The <link> element is a blank element with just properties.

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">


Metadata about an HTML document is defined via the <meta> element. Metadata is data about data (information).

<meta>we use <meta> tags to indicate character set, page description, keywords, document author, and viewport settings. They are always placed inside the <head> element.

  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="description" content="Free Web Development course">
  <meta name="keywords" content="HTML, CSS, JavaScript">
  <meta name="author" content="Snahal">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

Browsers (how to show content or reload page), search engines (keywords), and other online services all employ metadata.

The <meta> element provides a way for web designers to manage the viewport (the viewable area of a web page to the user) (See “Setting The Viewport” example below).
