HTML is such a simple language that most developers don’t even consider it a programming language, but today, we are going to go below the surface, and uncover 15 HTML tags that you can take advantage of today!

Cite is a tag that allows you to reference sources you mentioned throughout your website. It is mostly used in citing bibliographic or other site references.

2. Address

Another HTML tag that acts pretty much exactly the same as the Cite tag. As the name suggests, this tag allows you to mark addresses.

This tag can be helpful when you would like to display addresses clearly, and can also help your on-page SEO score.

<address style="font-size: 21px;"> Somewhere <br> 1234 Street <br> Something, AUS </address>
