  • 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, a <menu> element is used to define a list or menu of commands.
  • Each <li> element represents a command within the menu, forming a list of items.
  • The text within each <li> element represents the command or item in the menu.
