isindex HTML

HTML <isindex> Tag

The HTML <isindex> tag is not supported in HTML5. To query a document by providing a single-line text input in a page, the HTML <isindex> tag was used earlier. The list of the pages that matched with the query, was sent by the server in return. This tag was preferably placed within the <head> tag. The HTML form <input> tag is used nowadays to serve the same purpose.


<isindex prompt = text />


<!DOCTYPE html>  
<isindex prompt = "Hello World!!" />
