HTML <code> Tag

The <code> tag is used to insert fragments of program code, variables, etc. into an HTML document. In the browser, the code is displayed in a monospaced font (a font in which all characters are of the same width) of the smaller size.


The <code> tag comes in pairs. The content is written between the opening (<code>) and the closing (</code>) tags.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Title of the document</title>
    <p>Ordinary text.</p>
    <code>Line of program code.</code>
    <p>Continuation of the ordinary text.</p>



The <code> tag supports the Global Attributes and the Event Attributes.
