How many commands, such as <title> </title>, are there in HTML?

A friend of mine told me that there were only about 250 such tags which means that it's pretty easy for most coders to learn to write HTML. Is this true - are there only ~250 HTML commands, and if not,

How many HTML tags are there?

I use the HTM/HTML for a very long time, but the number cannot say, simply don't know, because it is never needed.
But You may begin learning, first try very simple things, then more difficult and so on.

I'm programming HTML for quite some years now, and I don't know the exact number of HTML tags (btw, what you call 'commands' are actually called 'tags'). The number is also constantly changing with any new HTML standard. 


In the same way it would be silly to learn a new language by memorizing a dictionary of that language from A-Z, it would not be wise to learn HTML by learning all the tags. There are some frequently used tags, and those you'll get to know as you go. Start with a tutorial, then make your own page, and learn the HTML tags as you need them. 

Btw, I would say this is applicable for any programming language


As pointed out before, w3schools is a really good reference for looking up HTML tags.

I also really like Mozilla's MDN site.
