HTML - TT (Teletype) and KBD (Keyboard) Tag

HTML <TT> (Teletype) Element 

The content of a <tt> element is written in monospaced font (like that of a teletype machine).

<tt> provides no semantic information about the text it encloses. It is purely used for text formatting purposes.

<tt> is short for teletype, and instructs the browser to render the text similar to that produced by old-style teletype machines, which is understood to be a fixed-width (monospace) font.

HTML Code:

the following word will appear in <tt> monospaced</tt> font.


the following word will appear in a monospaced font.
