Advantages and Disadvantages of using HTML


  • Easy to use
  • Loose syntax (although, being too flexible will not comply with standards)
  • Supported on almost every browser, if not all browsers.
  • Widely used; established on almost every website, if not all websites.
  • Very similar to XML syntax, which is increasingly used for data storage
  • Free – You need not buy any software
  • Easy to learn & code even for novice programmers


  • It cannot produce dynamic output alone, since it is a static language
  • Sometimes, the structuring of HTML documents is hard to grasp
  • You have to keep up with deprecated tags, and make sure not to use them
  • Deprecated tags appear because another language that works with HTML has replaced the original work of the tag; thus the other language needs to be learned (most of the time, it is CSS)
  • Security features offered by HTML are limited
