Code Tag Use to Represent Code Syntax in HTML5

The code tag encloses text in source code of a programming language.



The Code tag is used for indicating source code of a programming language. The code tag represents any variable name, type of variable, a filename, a computer program, or any type of code that a computer would recognize. This tag is best used for short pieces of code because it does not preserve white space.Syntax
