These both are the basics of the HTML and they both work together but performs different functions.

Tags: Tags are used to mark up the start of the HTML element and is enclosed by the angular brackets.

The above tag is the heading tag in HTML.

Attributes: These are the additional information about the tags and are specified within the tag.


<img src=”hello_world.jpg” alt=”My first program”>

So, all of us has seen power to variables or numbers at many places and several times. That is exactly know as superscript, the value which is a bit elevated from the main text. For this purpose, we use the <sup> tag. The superscript value is enclosed in the <sup> tag.

Example: Suppose we need to write square of x in our webpage, then it would be done as follows.

<p> x <sup> 2 </sup> </p>

GitHub Gist Link:

<script src=””> </script>

Here <p> tag is used for the paragraph and the text within the <sup> tag would be superscripted and x2 would be shown on the webpage.

2 is superscripted to x.

The CSS element of the superscript tag would be as follows:

Vertical-align: super;
Font-size: smaller;

GitHub Gist Link:

<script src=””> </script>

Most browsers will display the superscript text <sup> with the above CSS along with the default value.
