HTML consists of a set  of html elements  typed into a text - file by the site author these are set of html tags. The text is then saved as a html file, and viewed through a browser, like Internet Explorer or Google chrome , Firefox . This browser reads the file and translates the text into a visible form, hopefully rendering the page as the author had intended. Writing your own HTML entails using tags correctly to create your vision. You can use anything from a rudimentary text-editor to a powerful graphical editor to create HTML pages.
