HTML tag

HTML tag is used to pass the parameters to the object that has been embedded using element.

We can use more than one tag within an element in any order, but each tag must contain name and value attribute and should be placed at the start of the content.

The tag controls the behaviour of the element using a different pair of the name of value attributes, such as autoplay, controller, etc.
