A Standard is a set of requirements that ensures that programs that implement it work in the same way.

Standards have become very important to the development of HTML. This is because early on in HTML's history, web browsers used their own tags, which would sometimes break compatibility with other browsers. Browsers also allowed documents that were not well formed to be displayed. Because of this it was very hard to create an HTML document that was displayed consistently across all browsers.
