“I know HTML (How To Meet Ladies)”

"HTML” usually stands for “Hypertext Markup Language,” the standard markup language for creating web pages. A backronym (back acronym) joke has been printed on many images:

“I know HTML (How To Meet Ladies).”

A photo of this T-shirt was posted on flickr on March 2, 2006.


Wikipedia: HTML
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. With Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript it forms a triad of cornerstone technologies for the World Wide Web. Web browsers receive HTML documents from a web server or from local storage and render them into multimedia web pages. HTML describes the structure of a web page semantically and originally included cues for the appearance of the document.
