    <footer>

    Summary

    The HTML <footer> Element represents a footer for its nearest sectioning content or sectioning root element (i.e, its nearest parent <article>, <aside>, <nav>, <section>, <blockquote>, <body>, <details>, <fieldset>, <figure>, <td>). 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.

    Attributes

    This element only includes the global attributes.

    Examples

    <footer>
      Some copyright info or perhaps some author info for an &lt;article&gt;?
    </footer>
