You want to learn HTML, right?

Having a proper cheat sheet will make your life a ton of easier.

When I started out with web development (back in 2004), I used have a cheat sheet, too. Now it’s all in my head, though.

Whether you’re savvy web developer or just a trying to experiment a little, feel free to use this HTML cheat sheet below. I originally made it for my self, but since the launch of HTML5 I decided to update it, make it look better and share it on my website.

I’ve listed out all the mainstream HTML tags as well as the new HTML5 tags.

Enjoy.

  1. I want to learn Web designing and Web development. What should I do? Is there career chances in Web design and development?

  2. Completely new to html…. I have an aerial view of a campus and have a img map created with click able areas. I want the areas defined to be one color and highlights another color when mouse hover overs it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this with all. Please give #3. HTML Cheat sheet in .png – in A4 pdf format. Kindly make it in white background so that it can be cheaper printing it (the dark background will consume too much ink). And lastly, not forgetting to make it down-loadable.

  4. Many thanks for sharing this! I started learning HTML and CSS like a week ago and I was looking for something just like your cheat sheets to help me with the tags, hopefully I will remember most of them soon. Best wishes 🙂

  5. At the bottom of the PNG image, in the “Collective Character Objects” section, there is a mistake for the last three entities.
    (Uuml = Ü, ouml = ö, ucirc = û.)
    The @-sign has no entity; bull = Bullet, trade = Trademark.

    So, the table should read:
    @ (no entity) @ sign /
    • • Bullet /
    ™ ™ TM (Trademark)

  6. Hi, I just started learning HTML and CSS few months ago. I’m a computer science student in my second year of college, I really love this stuff but I have a memory problem. I tend to forget a lot of things that I learn especially when it comes down to programming, I’m worried that due to my short memory I might never become good at this. Is this cheat sheet ok for first timers, somebody please tell me that I’m not alone!

    • You’re not alone! It’s perfectly normal not to remember all of this stuff, especially the elements or attributes that rarely get used. You’ll remember the basics eventually after continuously using them and for the rest you’ll have cheat sheets like this – developers have to look up things online all the time 🙂

  7. I think I need to print these cheat sheets out and stick them on my wall… lots to learn! Thanks for the great resources 🙂

  8. Can you please send the download for the HTML Cheat sheet in .png? There is no download button on this link.

    Best,
    Quinn

  9. Just another thank you very much for your hard work to another novice web designer learning more of the basics than just drag and drop. This was extremely helpful in that journey. i will be back for more indepth reading & all those occasions where we pull our hair at 2am going, i know its just a missing comma. (smh now im reliving 30 year old high school votech cobol programming memories) Thanks again. Great site!
