Re: HTML 5 article vs section

Thanks for sharing. I always found the w3 description too cryptic. This article explains the tags in plain language.

Re: HTML 5 article vs section

Basically, as long as the section has a heading or assistive label, carry on using as normal. Was this even news? Has everyone forgotten the html5 document outline?

Hi Phil,
Admittedly, I never researched it. A quick search brought me to this.

Re: HTML 5 article vs section

Since when does any browser implement the HTML5 document outline, appart in some rather aggressive & silly styling in the default stylesheet? That is noted in the article BTW.

Re: HTML 5 article vs section

Yeah but the main takeaway I got from the article is that section with heading is fine, but not fine without heading. This was already known.
