illustrates the two sections in HTML: HEAD and BODY <BODY ...> is one of the two major sections that goes inside <HTML> (the other is <HEAD> ). <BODY ...> is the section that holds everything that is actually displayed. All the text, headers, tables, etc are in the <BODY ...> section.

For example, in this tiny little file, the contents ("My Home Page" and "Hi there!") are inside the <BODY ...> tag:

this code produces this
<TITLE>My Home Page</TITLE>
<H1>My Home Page</H1>
Hi there!
this page

Because <BODY ...> defines the visible section of the document, it has a number of attributes which control the overall document appearance. BGCOLOR , for example, controls the background color of the web page. The <BODY ...> attributes have become popular as a way of adding a little flair to the page, but have become a way to make the page obnoxious by using irritating colors. Be careful with the <BODY ...> attributes which control the colors on the page.
