    The HTML Footer Element (<footer>) represents a footer for its nearest sectioning content or sectioning root element. A footer typically contains information about the author of the section, copyright data or links to related documents.

    Usage notes:

    • Enclose information about the author in an <address> element that can be included into the <footer> element.
    • The <footer> element is not sectioning content and therefore doesn't introduce a new section in the outline.


    This element only includes the global attributes.


      Some copyright info or perhaps some author info for an &lt;article&gt;?
