04. Sectioning

HTML 5 has come out with a few tags for parts of our page that hold more special meanings.

Article

The <article> specifies independent, self-contained content. Imagine replicating a traditional newspaper page with numerous articles.

Sections

<section> defines sections of a document. This can be used to break apart pieces of an article, or the chapters, headers or footers.

Headers

The <header> element represents a container for introductory content or a set of navigational links.

A header can contain:

  • one or more heading elements
  • logo or icon
  • authorship information
Note: You can have more than one header

Footer

The <footer> defines a footer for a document or section.

A footer can contain:

  • authorship information
  • copyright information
  • contact
  • sitemap
  • facebook, twitter, instagram social media page
  • legal documents

Asides

An <aside>contains content that is aside from the content it is placed in, but still related to the surrounding content.

Navigation

The <nav> element defined a set of navigation links. This is often what you see at the top or side of most pages.
