• A <div> tag is a generic block tag and is very useful for binding scripts or styles to
an arbitrary section of a document. It complements <span> , which is used inline.
• Excessive use of <div> tags is almost as bad as excessive use of tables, particularly
when structuring page content.
• The HTML 4 specification specifies that the datafld , dataformatas , and datasrc
attributes are reserved for <div> and might be supported in the future. They were
removed from XHTML, but Internet Explorer supports them for data binding.
• Under the HTML 4.01 strict specification, the align attribute is not supported.
• HTML 3.2 supports only the align attribute.
