    <section> Redirect 1

    Introduced in HTML5

    Summary

    The HTML Section Element (<section>) represents a generic section of a document, i.e., a thematic grouping of content, typically with a heading.

    Usage notes :

    • If it makes sense to separately syndicate the content of a <section> element, use an <article> element instead.
    • Do not use the <section> element as a generic container; this is what <div> is for, especially when the sectioning is only for styling purposes. A rule of thumb is that a section should logically appear in the outline of a document.

    Attributes

    This element only includes the global attributes.

    Examples

    <section>
      <h1>Heading</h1>
      <p>Bunch of awesome content</p>
    </section>
