Java is a full-fledged object oriented programming language. It is derived from C++ and shares the same basic syntax with that language. HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is not a programming language. It is simply used as a scripting tool to develop web pages. It is not an editor - it is a simple scripting language that defines how the text and images will appear on the web page. Java is used to create small applications (called applets) that run in the browser. It can also be used to develop full-fledged applications.
