HTML and CSS Reference
GETTING AROUND A Web site is generally
known as navigation, and HTML5 recognizes
that fact by introducing a <nav> tag. With
simple sites, navigation is simple. However, bad
or inadequate navigation can invade virtually any
Web site. By the same token, good navigation can
make even the most complex site easy for the
user to i nd what he wants.
Because this topic focuses on HTML5, this
chapter shows how to set up dif erent navigation
systems using specii c HTML5 elements. How-
ever, before starting on the more specii c tags that
are to be used, you need to understand some
general Web navigation concepts.
