Level: 0

The base element allows the URL of the document itself to be recorded in situations in which the document may be read out of context. URLs within the document may be in a "partial" form relative to this base address.

Where the base address is not specified, the browser uses the URL it used to access the document to resolve any relative URLs.

The one attribute for base is href, which identifies the URL.
