The HTML document type was designed by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN as part of the 1990 World-Wide Web project. In 1992, Dan Connolly wrote the HTML Document Type Definition (DTD) and a brief HTML specification.
Since 1993, a wide variety of Internet participants have contributed to the evolution of HTML, which has included the addition of in-line images introduced by the NCSA Mosaic software for WWW. Dave Raggett played an important role in deriving the FORMS material from the HTML+ specification.
Dan Connolly and Karen Olson Muldrow rewrote the HTML Specification in 1994.
