document which includes the addressing (who is supposed to read it) and title

you were writing a document about the joys of fishing, you might want to put:
<HEAD> <TITLE> The Joys of Fishing </TITLE> </HEAD>
Notice that the TITLE tags are sandwiched between the HEAD tags. This is done so that the computer knows what order to process things in. All tags must have a beginning and a closing tag (with very few exceptions). But the innermost opening tag must also be the innermost closing tag.
Alternately, in large documents, it is possible to get lost, as to which tag came first 100 lines ago. To keep this straight, it is good practice to INDENT the innermost tags by a few spaces. Below is an example of this same code, using the indentation practice.
