The internet has grown rapidly in recent years. This growth has increased the demand for techniques that can ensure information security. In this paper, the authors propose a text steganography technique that uses html documents as the cover medium to hide secret messages. The use of html documents has a benefit that the existence of a secret message will not be suspicious as html documents are fundamental elements of the web and are used very commonly on the internet. They have implemented their technique using C#.net technology. The technique proposed by one also integrates cryptography with steganography by first encrypting the secret message and then hiding the encrypted secret message in html cover medium.
