Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video The value of structure, part of HTML Essential Training.
…So far, we covered a little bit of the background of HTML and…the basic elements that are required for each HTML document.…In this chapter, we'll begin exploring how to structure pages…properly by examining the sectioning elements that are available in HTML.…One of the major benefits of HTML is that it allows us to…structure documents in a way that illustrates the meaning of the content.…This is often referred to as semantics.…And it's an important part of the web authoring process.…Most of the time content in a web page fits within specific sections.…
You might have the company information up top in a heading.…The site navigation and a section below that followed by the main content and…perhaps, a sidebar with some related information below it.…Below everything else, there might be a footer than contains contact…information or other information related to the site.…Now that's a pretty standard layout for…web pages and if you spent any time at all browsing the web,…you probably recognize those sections almost immediately and intuitively.…
