HTML Plaintext tag
plaintext tag in HTML is used to indicate that the enclosed text should be displayed as plain text, without any formatting or interpretation of HTML tags. Here is an example of how it can be used:
Exaple for HTML Plaintext Tag
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Example of plaintext tag</title> </head> <body> <plaintext> This is an example of using the plaintext tag in HTML. Any HTML tags within this block of text will be ignored and the text will be displayed exactly as written. Here is an example of a list: - Item 1 - Item 2 - Item 3 As you can see, the list is not formatted as an HTML list, but is displayed as plain text. </plaintext> </body> </html>
When this code is rendered in a browser, the text within the
plaintext tag will be displayed exactly as written, without any formatting or interpretation of HTML tags. This can be useful in situations where you want to display code or other types of text that should not be interpreted as HTML. However, it is important to note that the
plaintext tag is not supported in HTML5, and its use is not recommended. Instead, it is better to use the
pre tag or CSS to achieve the desired display of non-HTML text.
