Question

This exercise says that tags will be rendered. What does it mean for a tag to be rendered?

Answer

A key component of a web browser is its rendering engine. The rendering engine takes HTML code and renders it or interprets it into what we see visually on the page. A tag like <em> together with the browser’s default style sheet, instructs the rendering engine to display this tag’s content in italics, thereby emphasizing its content.
