HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- Declares the document type and version of HTML -->
<html><!-- Begins the HTML document -->
<head><!-- Contains metadata about the document -->
<meta charset="utf-8"><!-- Specifies the character encoding for the document -->
<title>How to define marked/highlighted text</title><!-- Sets the title of the document -->
</head><!-- Ends the head section -->
<body><!-- Contains the content of the document -->
<mark>w3resource</mark><!-- Defines highlighted/marked text -->
is a web development tutorial. <!-- Regular text content -->
</body><!-- Ends the body section -->
</html><!-- Ends the HTML document -->


  • The HTML document begins with a declaration of its type and version (<!DOCTYPE html>).
  • The <html> element encloses the entire HTML document.
  • The <head> section contains metadata about the document, including the character encoding and the title.
  • Inside the <body> section, the <mark> element is used to define highlighted or marked text.
  • The text "w3resource" is enclosed within the <mark> tags, indicating that it should be visually highlighted.
  • The rest of the text "is a web development tutorial." is displayed as regular content.
