HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
Main structure

ALTHOUGH MUCH OF HTML5 is for making interactive
applications, there is a great deal of interest to markup
monkeys as well as JavaScript junkies; 28 new elements
exist with new semantics that can be used in traditional
“static” pages, as well as a swathe of new form controls that
can abolish JavaScript form validation altogether.
Let's get straight into the code and begin marking up
a typical page with HTML5. We'll transform the current
markup structure of <div> s into a more semantic system
using new HTML5 structural elements like <nav> , <header> ,
<footer> , <aside> , and <article> . We'll look at how these
work, and how HTML5 documents have an unambiguous
outline and are—arguably—more “semantic.”
But fi rst things fi rst. We need to open a code editor and
enter a DOCTYPE and preliminary information.
