Weren't we creating HTML documents in lesson 1 of "Learn HTML"?



This exercise says that we will use what we learned in lesson 1 to create an HTML document in lesson 2. Weren’t we already creating HTML documents in this lesson?


Not quite. This lesson focused on some common elements developers use within the <body> tag. The content of the <body> tag will display on a page but, as you will learn in lesson 2, HTML documents also have a document type declaration and metadata which is not displayed on the page.
